Dear Lord, Please grant me Wisdom.

King Solomon prayed this prayer, and it is a prayer I need to pray, often.  Today as I thought about it, I put this prayer into words.

I pray for WISDOM.
  Wisdom for LIFE.

Wisdom to live well,
  in this body God has created for me.

Wisdom to know how to care for myself
  as I work
    as I eat
     as I move
        as I rest.

Wisdom in relationships
   for those I love,
         those closest to me
   for those I work with
      and play with
        and worship with.

I pray for Wisdom
   as a citizen of this world
    even as I call Heaven my home to be.

I pray for wisdom
   to care for the poor
   to know how to show mercy
   and call for justice for the oppressed.
I pray for Wisdom to be a loving neighbour
   in my neighbourhood
     in my community
       in my country
          in the world in which I live.

I pray for Wisdom
  God’s wisdom, not my own.
That Wisdom would be a loud voice,
  a clear voice…
   in a world of many voices
     and opinions.

I pray for Wisdom
  for how to love
    for how to live.
      for how to Be.


“How blessed is the man (woman) who finds wisdom.  And the man (and woman) who gains understanding.  For her profit is better than the profit of silver and her gain better than fine gold.” From Proverbs 3
