Dear Heavenly Father, Your child comes before You seeking wisdom …
May you grant me wisdom to accomplish all that You have put before me in Your strength and Your power with grace and humility and solely for Your glory.
May You grant me wisdom to discern between good and evil in all that is around me in all that is within me and to know only that which is holy.
May You grant me wisdom to love others as You do; to understand their value fully; to accept them unconditionally; and give of myself wholly.
May You grant me wisdom to treasure Your many blessings; all that You have given me; all that You have shown me; and, in gratitude, live my life purely.
May You grant me wisdom that comes only from above. Wisdom so divine yet wisdom that is mine and strongest when meek and lowly.
