I pray that You would give the gifts of wisdom, discernment and revelation to Mark. Help Mark to trust You with
all his heart, not depending on his own understanding, but acknowledging You in all his ways so that he may hear your clear
direction as to which path to take (Proverbs 3:5).
Help Mark to discern good from evil and be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit saying, "This is the way,
walk in it" (Isaiah 30:21). I know that much of Mark's happiness in life depends on gaining wisdom and discernment, which
Your Word says brings long life, wealth, recognition, protection, enjoyment, contentment and happiness. I want all those things
for Mark, but I want them to come as blessings from You.
Your Word says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding"
(Proverbs 9:10). May a healthy fear and a knowledge of You be the foundation upon which wisdom and discernment are established
in Mark. May Mark turn to You for all decisions so that He doesn't make poor choices.Help Mark to see that all the treasures
of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in You and that You give of them freely when we ask for them. As Mark sees wisdom and discernment
from You, Lord, pour it liberally upon Mark so tht all Mark's path will be peace and life.
In Proverbs 3:12-18 it states: "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding; for her
proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies, and all the
things you may desire cannot compare with her. Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand, riches and honor. Her
ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy
are all who retain her."
Thank You God for dramatically increasing my level of spiritual wisdom. May it continue to grow. Please
bless me and send the Holy Spirit to help me stay on the path of wisdom and righteousness -- help me to be a loving, kind,
devoted, prayer warrior as I parent Mark.
