Praying through Ecclesiastes 9:12

Heavenly Father, thank You that my life has meaning in Christ, for without Him I am nothing. Help me not to chase after the wind and engage in futile matters that have no permanence or lasting security. Thank You that in Christ I have all I need to make my life meaningful and productive, and I pray that in all I say and do, my life may be lived to honour You, and to glorify Your holy name. This I ask in Jesus' name. AMEN.

“For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.”
(Ecclesiastes 9:12)

Praying through Ecclesiastes 9:18

Heavenly Father, endow me with wisdom and discernment from on high I pray, for I know that the spiritual battle in which we are engaged will not be victorious through man's skills and the strategies of this fallen world system, but are only supplied by grace, through trusting You, and standing firm on the Word of God. Thank You that in Him we have all we need for life and godliness, and thank You for the spiritual armour which has been provided for our protection. Father, I know that the battle is the Lord's and I desire to carry out Your plans and purposes for my life. Give me the wisdom I need to stand firm in this evil day, and help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, and my heart ready to obey Your call. This I ask in His precious name, AMEN.

“Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.”
