My Prayer at Benson City Council Meeting

Tonight I was invited to do the invocation at the Benson City Council Meeting at 7 pm. Here is the prayer I lifted to God –

Heavenly Father, Creator of all things, the God of all gods, Omniscient, Omnipotent, it is You that we acknowledge tonight. We come to You knowing that You can see the future and into our hearts. We confess our limitations and weaknesses as human beings and we need Your Holy Spirit to guide us today. We need Your wisdom in addressing the business and issues facing the city.  As Solomon asked God for Wisdom in directing the affairs of Israel, we too ask for Your wisdom to be prominent in this body of council members.

You said in Your Word,   “If any of (us – My note) you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.  For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;  he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:5-8)

So we come to You with a limited faith; faith as a grain of mustard seed and ask for Your help in giving us Your wisdom as we now take on the business of the city, in Jesus name we pray amen.
