Day 10: Praying for His Choices
Dear Lord, please forgive my husband for any bad choices he has made in the past. Give him the humility to admit when he was wrong, rather than defending the decisions (Prov 21:1).
As he makes choices today, please don’t let him be wise in his own eyes. I pray that he fears you and turns away from evil. Lord, you caution us against foolishly trusting in our own hearts (Prov 28:26) and doing what seems right to us at the time (Prov 21:1). Instead, may he seek wisdom from you, because you promise to give it to anyone who asks (James 1:5). I ask that then, instead of despising your wisdom and instruction, that he would fear you and seek out knowledge from you (Prov 1:7).
Give him the wisdom from You that brings success (Ecc 10:10) and helps him learn from past experiences (Prov 15:31). Please help him hear you and your wisdom and then increase in learning. If he comes to a situation where he doesn’t know what to do, give him enough humility to ask and seek out wise counsel (Prov 1:5).
I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.
The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.
Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart.
He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.
