Day 31 – Spiritual Discernment, Contributed by Deacon Candidate Shawn Davis-Wilensky

Meditative ThoughtTeach me good judgment and knowledge, For I believe Your commandments.  Psalm 119: 66



The rich man is wise in his own eyes, But the poor who has understanding searches him out.                                                                                                                                               Proverbs 28:11

His delight is in the fear of the Lord, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;                                                                                            Isaiah 11: 3


If you abide in Me, and My word abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.                                                                                                                               John 15: 7

“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.”                                                                                                                                                        John 17: 24

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.                               Romans 12: 2


We pray with this confidence:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

(II Chronicles 7:14)

Dear Father,

Thank you for being God.  Hear our prayer O Lord as we pray for this new season for 19th Street Baptist Church and the new Shepherd who has been called to lead this flock.  Please give Your servant a discerning heart to judge Your people, that he may discern between good and evil.  For who is to judge this great people of Yours. (1 Kings 3:9). Lord, we are grateful for the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the form of gifts which are given to us for the good of all.  We pray for the spiritual gift of discernment in all areas of our lives- home, work, and church.  Please continue to guide us and keep us.  As we are taught in Romans 12:3; “We will present ourselves as a living sacrifice- not conformed to this world, but transformed. The world is changing all around us and evil challenges us, but teach us to discern what is good and acceptable and the perfect will of God.  Thank you Lord.  Amen.
