Ask God for Wisdom

Text: James 1:5-8

For what do you most often pray? Often we are inclined to pray for changes in our circumstances so that our lives would be more pleasant (or less difficult).
James tells us to pray for that which we most need – wisdom. God, because He is giving and generous, delights to answer this prayer (as he did for Solomon long ago).
James also tells us how to pray, not in double-minded doubt, but in single-hearted faith. The reason some don’t receive wisdom is that they fail to seek and value God’s wisdom.
