Yahweh, The Lord,
I have a desire for Truth. If I have never had a life changing encounter with Christ, then I open my heart to receive Him as my Lord and Savior. I do not want to perish for lack of knowledge, but will continue knocking, seeking, and asking for Truth (Hosea 4:6)
I do not want to be blinded by the world’s pleasures. If money, power or prestige has been my focus, then I pray for redirection, a redirection of my priorities, a revival of my spirit and restoration, a transformation of my mind to know Christ and the power of the resurrection (Romans 12:2). I do not want to be as the rich young man, unable to let go of his wealth, treasures stored up where moth and rust destroy (Matthew 6:19).
I know the love of money is the root of all evil, leading some away from their faith and causing much grief (1Timothy 6:10). My heart’s desire is to be content where ever you place me, whether abasing or abounding (Philippians 4:12). If I need time to spend with You, then lead me to green pastures and living water (Psalm 23). Help me as the Queen of Sheba, seek you out and the Truth in which I desire to know. For I know in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). I want to know more for I do not want to be deceived by fine sounding arguments or help captive by the hollow, deceptive philosophies of the world (Colossians 2:8).
As Solomon instructed the queen, I know that fear of the Lord is beginning of knowledge and wise men store up this knowledge (Proverbs 1:7, 10:14). It is written who ever loves discipline loves knowledge, I do not want to be one who hates correction for the Lord disciplines those He loves (Proverbs 12:1). Help me to sit, study and listen to the Word. I have zeal for the House of God, but it is written not to be zealous without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way (Proverbs 19:2).
Thank You Lord for the Word. Thank You I can study the women of the Bible and learn from them. Thank You Father I can come to You any time I desire for wisdom, knowledge, and correction. I praise You Lord for Your goodness! In the name of Jesus of Nazareth I pray, amen.
