Father God, incline my ears to your words of wisdom that I may apply your knowledge to my heart. Keep them within my memory in your pleasant presence. Help me to have them ready on my lips whenever the chance to speak for your kingdom presents itself. Allow me the honor to use them in counsel to make known what is right and true. Grant my petition in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise, rand apply your heart to my knowledge, for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you, if all of them are ready on your lips.” (Proverbs 22: 17-18 ESV)
