The following was put on the front page of one of our recent church bulletins. A prayer very worthy of posting, our church media team copied it below. It can be found at
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.
Proverbs 23:22 (NIV)
Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.

How many are your works, Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
There is the sea, vast and spacious,
teeming with creatures beyond number—
living things both large and small.
There the ships go to and fro,
and Leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.
All creatures look to you
to give them their food at the proper time.
When you give it to them,
they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
they are satisfied with good things.
When you hide your face,
they are terrified;
when you take away their breath,
they die and return to the dust.
When you send your Spirit,
they are created,
and you renew the face of the ground.
