A Request for a Time Management Teaching

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (see Psalm 90:12)

Notice in the text of this Christian devotional that the author is requesting to be taught to number his days. As we work on our time management, we should be mindful that we have a limited amount of time or days to work with.

Sometimes we can get so busy doing so many different things that we forget that we only have so much time and energy.

Think about all that it takes to keep you happy, healthy, and comfortable. Add to that all that it takes to develop and maintain enjoyable and trusted friendships, while carrying out family duties.

And if that is not enough, add to the above list all of the things that it takes for you to make a meaningful contribution. The contribution may be in your church, community, or both.

The author calls on God to teach him to number his days. And by extension, the author wants to be taught how to use his limited days to do what matters the most. Make this the day that you put in your request to God for time management teaching.


1. On a scale of one to five, with five being great, how well are you doing with requesting time management teaching from the Lord?

2. What will you work on TODAY to help you do better or continue to do great in this area?


Great and awesome God, the One who is the master teacher of time management and all that is important in my life, it is to You that I pray. Thank You for always being just a prayer away. I confess that I have not always called on You to help me use my time wisely. Please forgive me and help me to do better in this area. In Jesus’ name, amen.
