Omniscient and merciful God, there is none like you who grants understanding and discernment to your children. Wisdom calls out for me from the city gates. She raises her voice at the crossroads I face. She begs me to learn prudence and good sense. She speaks noble things. Her mouth utters truth. Her words are righteous, not crooked or twisted. Her instruction carries more worth than silver or gold. It brings peace and abundant life. Grant me your wisdom in the name and authority of Jesus, who spoke truth in all things, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right, for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.” (Proverbs 8:6-7 ESV)
