Holy Spirit, teach me wisdom and discernment. May my dealings be wise, full of righteousness, justice and equity. May I grow in learning. Grant me your guidance. Let me understand the words of the wise, for fools despise wisdom and instruction, but the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7 ESV)
