#40WordPrayer on LEARNING
God has given me the tongue of a teacher,
that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.
Morning by morning he wakens —
wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught.
— Isaiah 50:4
Don’t worry, God, I have it all under control,
I know what I’m doing, I’m done learning, and I don’t need to listen.
God, help me to be more teachable today
than I was yesterday
and to be more teachable tomorrow than I am today.
There are still times when I find it difficult to admit that I may need help. Somewhere deep down, I still feel that asking for and receiving help somehow communicate weakness and are detrimental to my work. Intellectually, I understand the opposite to be true. Seeking and accepting guidance only strengthen what I do and are signs of confidence and security. I am not always driven by my intellect. Shocker. Sometimes, I just don’t want help.
