But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. – James 1:5
Eternal God, you have created us to be perfect, and have endowed us with gifts of all kinds required to live a life fraught with challenges, both worldly and spiritual. Yet, we repeatedly err and fall prey to the lures of the devil. We face trials in our lives only to the extent of our endurance, for you are our Omniscient God and have absolute knowledge of us.
Lord, you have demonstrated your unsurpassed love for us by watching us and constantly helping us out when we falter, preventing us from stumbling when our complete trust is in you. Our faith in you is never misplaced, for you are a faithful and righteous God and know the extent of our forbearance, testing us in so much as we can undergo and never more than our resilience and capacity to endure.
We thank you Lord, for renewing us everyday according to our needs. We know that you are compassionate to our failures for we are human and have human frailties that at times leads us to follow the wrong path. But we are assured of your unfailing mercy and your guidance when we lose our way. You have promised help when we declare our inability to cross certain obstacles and you offer us the wisdom to understand each time we are at a crossroad. We pray that we may always be recipients of your favor, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
