Prayer for Godly Words

The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will. – Isaiah 50:4 NLT


Lord, here I am this morning, awaiting Your words of wisdom. I need to have a talk with my child today and I don’t know what to say or how to say it. Give me direction. Open my eyes, heart, and spirit to understanding Your will for me and my child. I want to know how to speak words to comfort, direct, and assist him/her. Help me, O Lord. Guide the words of my tongue. Amen.
