Wisdom From Above

Lord,

I thank you for your wisdom

that is pure, gentle, reasonable,

and brings peace and good fruit.

Thank you for your kind counsel

and your voice that always leads.

I praise you — in you there is no confusion or anxiety,

by your guidance, my steps are secure,

my ways well planned,

surrendered to you who makes the way.

Help me to know my function,

that I may not rush ahead

and miss the goals you have placed in my heart.

Grant me understanding of who you’ve created me to be,

how I’m made,

that my decisions would be wise,

filled with knowledge, understanding, insight, and common sense,

that I would steward my life and my heart well for you,

and live to honor and glorify you with all that I am.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.
