MPW#6 Pray for Wisdom

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

Wisdom is vital. It’s as important for you as it is for me. Yet folks in the military, because we are in such close quarters with those we need to reach with the Gospel, need extra helpings of a different kind of wisdom.

A military member needs wisdom so that he or she won’t make costly mistakes that would hinder the Gospel. We need wisdom to deal with unique situations that those in the civilian community don’t face. We need wisdom to know when to share the Gospel. We need wisdom when in the battle zone. The list goes on and on…which is why we pray for wisdom today.

Lord, please grant our fighting men and women the wisdom they need in order to do your work. We know that you give it in large portions, and as the believers who serve our country pray for it, we pray with them. Please grant them the wisdom they need to be better servants for you.--Amen
