My Dearest God,

  I pray that You would give the gifts of wisdom, discernment and revelation to Sarah. Help Sarah to trust You with all her heart, not depending on her own understanding, but acknowledging You in all her ways so that she may hear Your clear direction as to which path to take (Proverbs 3:5).
  Help Sarah 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 Sarah'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 Sarah, 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 knowledge of You be the foundation upon which wisdom and discernment are established in Sarah. May Sarah turn to You for all decisions so that she doesn't make poor choices. Help Sarah 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 Sarah seeks wisdom and discernment from You, Lord, pour it liberally upon Sarah so that all her paths will be peace and life.

"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; she will bring you honor, when you embrace her." (Proverbs 4:7-8)
