40 Days of Prayer to Change America

October 20, 2012

WISDOM

"Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you."

—Proverbs 4:6 (NIV)

Biblically speaking, wisdom is looking at things from God's perspective and making the right choices based on that perspective. How critical it is for a nation that wants to experience God's protection to love and embrace wisdom. As the United States increasingly accepts a secular mindset and rejects divine revelation as a basis for our laws, we move further away from the protection offered by wisdom.

  • Thank God for the gift of wisdom, and for the ability to see things from His perspective as we turn to His Word.
  • Repent on behalf of our nation, because we have turned from making Scripture the basis of law, leaving behind wisdom, and looking to ourselves for truth.
