Prayer for Preventing Disasters


"The wise man is glad to be instructed,

but a self-sufficient fool falls flat on his face."


Proverbs 10:8 TLB

This article is about

Spiritual “Tripping.”

Spiritual  “tripping” happens

when we do something that is unwise.

~ ~ ~

That "trip" will cause

problems in our life and possibly hurt those we love.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Tripping can involve a simple issue in our life

  or a complicated issue.

Sometimes we "trip" over things


we never really understand what happened.

In those cases,

we need


from God

as to what is going on.

Dear Lord,

What specifically is tripping me up?

Please open my eyes.

Please guide me toward wisdom.

In Jesus' name I pray,


At other times,

we know what is making us trip,

but we haven't taken the time and effort

to prevent the tripping.

~ ~

In those cases,

we need


from God

to amend our actions

so that we get better results in life.

Revelation + Motivation  =  Transformation

Dear Lord,

I know what is tripping me up.

But I just haven't done anything about it.

I need your motivation.

Inspire me with ideas that will motivate me.

I will spend time seeking wisdom.

  In Jesus' name I pray,


The Bible tells us over and over

in many different verses

and with many

different words that:

Wise, teachable people

do not fall

as often as others.


The Bible implores us to become

                          wise, teachable people.

"Show me Your ways, O Lord'

Teach me Your paths.

Lead me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

On You I wait all the day."

Psalm 25:4-5 NKJV

"Apply your heart to instruction,
and your ears to words of knowledge."

Proverbs 23:12

"If you profit from constructive criticism

you will be elected to the wise men's hall of fame.

But to reject criticism is to harm yourself

and your own best interests."

Proverbs 15:31-32 TLB


"Pride ends in a fall, while humility brings honor."

Proverbs 29:23 TLB

Dear Lord,

I am going to be more open to learning from my mistakes.

I am going to practice being teachable.

Remind me, Lord, of this commitment.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Teachable people are open to instruction from God

and from people.

They try to prevent tripping.


Teachable People are saved

from many things!

"He who is often rebuked, and

hardens his neck,

will suddenly be destroyed,

and that without remedy."

Proverbs 29:1 NKJV
