For Discernment To Give Godly Counsel

Loving Lord I ask that You would give me a wise and understanding heart –a heart that readily discerns Your will so that I make the best choices for my life and am enabled to give the best help to those in need.

Give me an obedient heart - a heart that is ready and willing to say Thy will be done and not to insist that my will is best. Lord I know that the heart is deceptive and I pray that I will be kept from wrongly discerning Your truth because of my pride or foolishness – keep me low at the cross I pray.

Keep me I pray from ungodly council for I know how destructive the loose words of a false witness can be and keep me from a presumptuous attitude that is so destructive to the soul.

Open my heart I pray to listen to Your still small voice and give me discernment to know when to speak and what to remain silent – direct and govern my steps I pray in the name of Jesus Christ,
