My Truths #17 - Wisdom & Mercy

17. All of your prayers boil down to the desire for wisdom or mercy.

All of our petitionary prayers for things like jobs, finances, relationships, fulfillment, peace, and healing, are nothing more than a yearning for wisdom to take the right steps, make the right choices, and a greater capacity for kindness and forgiveness for ourselves and others. 

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.—James 3:17

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.James 1:5
