God, grant me wisdom and with it, good judgment.
I shall make right choices on this walk through life.
For it is in wisdom that love abounds.
Wisdom with understanding begets good judgment.
Sometimes perceptions might be askew.
But wisdom perceives, loves, and forgives.
Absolving anxiety and steadfastly soothing anger.
Wisdom places peace in the heart of life.
Making days wonderful, it brings harmony.
Bestowing calmness to the mind and stillness to the soul.
The gift of wisdom is my greatest desire.
For wisdom shows forth love from beginning to end.
God, please grant me wisdom so that life will be wonderful
And I may be found worthy in the end.
