Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.
Text: Luke 16:8
“For the children of this age are more shrewd than the children of light in dealing with their own people.” (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, grant us wisdom in the world. Help us to talk with others, learn with others, and influence others in a way that shows a deeper, richer wisdom than the world has ever known. We know that such wisdom can only come from you, your Spirit at work in our hearts and minds. Grant us wisdom that we can, above all, show the world your love and grace. Amen.
