May God Grant You Discernment and Godly Wisdom

κόσμου (Strong #2889) transliteration: kosmos – order, the world (definition:  the world, universe; worldly affairs; the inhabitants of the world; adornment) [see online reference]

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for music. Thank you for ears to hear it. Thank you for those talented to compose it and for those gifted to be able to play it! And thank you for the scriptures to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. (1 Corinthians 3:19)

It is written in Job:

13 [Eliphaz is speaking] He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong. (Job 5:13)

Lord, it’s me again. I am enjoying my time sitting with you. It is wonderful knowing that I can come sit with you at any time, day or night.  And right now I am here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who loves you very much. Lindsey, I pray that God would give you discernment and godly wisdom. I pray that he would allow you to see what the world calls wisdom as foolish in his eyes. I pray that God would grant you wisdom beyond your years. I pray that God would give you opportunities to share with others the wisdom of God. I pray that he will let you see how the schemes and craftiness of the world are NOT the answer, nor to be desired. Lindsey, I pray that God will watch over you and surround you with godly people. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. Glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

New Testament (1 Corinthians 3:19 NIV):
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”;

Old Testament (Job 5:13 NIV):
13 He catches the wise in their craftiness,
    and the schemes of the wily are swept away.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
