Dear Lord, Give Me Wisdom
By Cinda M Carter
Dear Lord, Give me wisdom
In making my decisions
Help remind me to pray
To think about what I am going to say.
Sometimes without thinking I jump in with both feet
Only because I did not pray and think
I didn’t think of the consequences it would bring
I was eager to serve without Your leading.
You are truly merciful and You do forgive
Though the damage is done You will bring
What Satan meant for evil, and turn it for good
These things will eventually be understood.
If I would just take the time to pray
And listen to what God has to say
I could avoid so many mistakes
As prayer prevents them taking place.
So, my prayer is, Dear Lord,
Help me to listen to You and be in accord.
One with the Holy Spirit knowing Your will, I pray,
Dear Lord, Give me wisdom, so You can have Your way.
‘If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.’
