Prayer for wisdom in times of adversity
In the time of adversity, one of the things we need so dearly but seldom love is truth. Our eyes are clouded by the pain of our circumstances, and our hearts only embrace that which can alleviate our circumstances.
Sadly, only the truth can set us free.
Many stay longer than required in seasons of trials and tribulations because they wallow in self-pity and are surrounded by guests of their pity party.
Christ never said our lives in him will be all feasting and rejoicing, he said there will be trials and tribulations, but we are also assured that it is okay to be cheerful because He has overcome the world.
These prayers, when offered in faith, will cause God to grant us the spirit of wisdom in times of adversity. Please ensure that you mention the specific adversity you are going through while praying. God requires that our requests are specific
