Seeking wisdom for your community

The book of James is full of great wisdom! It also gives us instruction on seeking the wisdom of God. As we are less than 10 days away from election season in America, there is never a greater time to seek the wisdom from our heavenly Father. Whether you have casted an early ballot or waiting for the big day, be challenged to seek guidance from God.

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 

James 3:13-17 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

During noon time prayer this week pray for wisdom.

  1. Pray that God grants you wisdom in how to vote.
  2. Pray that you would have wisdom in what is best for your local community.
  3. Pray that elected officials would seek God’s wisdom.

Remember, instructions for the prayer movement are simple:

  1. Set your alarm/reminder on your device for 12 Noon EST each day for prayer. You only need to spend 3-5 minutes in corporate prayer with us. If you aren’t able to pray at 12 Noon EST, NO PROBLEM! Just pick a consistent time of prayer each day.
  2. Use the weekly blog/email as a template of how we are praying for the week. It will include a scripture reference + 3 key points to pray.
  3. Share on social media! Our desire to see God’s people come together as ONE in prayer. The more people that join the movement the better!

How to prayerfully bless your city

For the past few months we have been seeking God and praying for our communities and country. We have taken the word of God and applied to our prayers. As we continue that theme and praying for the upcoming elections in America, we find ourselves in the wisdom of Proverbs.

By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown. – Proverbs 11:11

If you are like me, so many thoughts so threw my mind concerning this piece of wisdom. I paused for a good moment of reflection to ask myself if I was being a blessing to the place God has planted me?

Jeremiah 29:4-7 provides more insight: “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. (emphasis added).

Brothers and sisters in Christ, reading the great wisdom literature of Proverbs and studying Jeremiah’s to the exiles, provides a great example of how we should be approaching our communities and country. No matter where you are planted.

How can we use Proverbs 11 to pray this week?

  1. God I thank you that I am able to be a blessing to (community you reside in). Through the love and humility demonstrated by Christ, may my life represent Christ calling to love God and love people.
  2. Pray for the community you are in. For leaders to have a relationship with Christ. For leaders to seek to glorify God in their service.
  3. Pray that Christ would be made known through the witness and service of this followers.

As you pray this week, specifically call out your community and the leaders by name.
