"Wise God who governs with harmony, with justice and love! I give you praise, for you rule over all man and creation with your deep, deep wisdom.

God, I thank you for helping me to realize that the way of life of the wise involves speaking with a mind that is in awe of you, waiting for the timing of the Lord, and serving the community with kindness and truth (Proverbs 20:15-30). Would you help me to be in awe of you and take heed to your words, that I may become a person of wisdom who speaks words of wisdom.

Today I sincerely desire to live as a wise and righteous person, leaving behind the way of evil. God, I ask for your wisdom and discernment, that I may discern what is good. Lead my thoughts and life. Instead of acting rashly with an impatient heart, may I wait as I ask for the wisdom and ways of the God who leads me to the best possible path. I trust in your guidance. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen."
