14 Inspiring Prayers For Learning

Are you wanting to learn more in the coming year? Have you considered praying about what and how you will learn?

These fourteen inspiring prayers for learning cover a variety of scenarios and are intended for you to get you started in talking to God. You can alter the wording of any prayer, if needed, to better fit your personal circumstances. I encourage you to also take a look at prayers for struggling in school, and How to Get Closer to God.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” (Psalm 32.8, NIV).

The Psalmist is telling us that God does not leave us on our own as we move along in life. As you seek God’s guidance, He will direct you and help you learn what you need to learn to take the next step. And God does all this in the context of His great love for you.

Send Your Spirit to open my eyes to the truth I read in scripture. Make it real for me, Lord. I ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Concluding Thoughts

Depending on your history, learning may be an enjoyable process, or it may seem daunting. As you move along in life, you’ll always be learning, sometimes from new material or information that comes your way, or, often, through making mistakes.

You don’t have to be afraid of learning in your life, regardless of what it may be. God wants you to be able to grow in who you are and what you can do. There’s always something to learn in the different seasons of life, so why not bring all that to God in prayer?

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope” ( Romans 15.4, NIV).

As you learn, you can embrace the hope that comes with it, knowing that all good things come from God Almighty. Keep on praying!
