Almost every day for the past 20 years, I have prayed the same prayer…
“Lord, give me wisdom beyond my years.”
I pray this prayer daily in my personal prayer time. I pray it at the beginning of every leadership team meeting. I pray it when I have big decisions to make.
Sometimes, God will lead me to make a decision that seems a bit contrarian. God’s ways are so much higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). If you think about it, it’s one of the smartest prayers we can pray.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” James 1:5
