From Psalm 25:8-14…
Reading Timothy Keller this morning lead me to adapt a prayer:
Lord, don’t just make me blindly obedient to Your will in a “because-He-said-so” way, but give me understanding to appreciate why Your will is best and why I want it more than anything else.
Lord, make me wise so I may discern Your will in matters to which the Scriptures do not directly speak. Help me to grow, with necessary humility, in wisdom, judgment, and prudence so I may obediently – and with great joy – do Your revealed and discerned will always.
