Blessed is the Man Who Finds Wisdom
The purposes of this prayer are: Wisdom, Guidance/Purpose and World Peace.
Omniscient Lord, the writers of Proverbs had much to say about wisdom, prudence and reasoned discernment. The writers often personified wisdom: “Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” Proverbs 3:13–18 (NIV). Gracious God, our wisdom is the good news of your Son, Jesus, the Christ. Jesus is more precious to us than all the gold and silver in the world, for eternal life is in his right hand and all his ways lead to peace. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for sending your Son to save us from our sins. Amen.
