Holy Spirit, train us up in the way we should go. Grant us the desire to seek wisdom and discernment. Show us the untapped power of our mental capacity to think, to learn, to ponder and to find solutions. Turn us away from leaders who deceive. Remind us of our individualism in Christ, and steer us clear of mindless following of current thought patterns without researching them all the way to their conclusions. May we hear your prompting in our daily choices. May we see past the day to challenge our future. May we bring our God-given brain power to the table to speak in truth and love. Lead us in the way that is truth and light. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.” (Hebrews 5:14 ESV)
