A Prayer for Wisdom, from Daily Prayer for All Seasons

 

Jesus, divine companion: As the day unfolds, give us strength to understand and eyes to see, as you teach us to walk the soft earth, related to all that lives. Amen.



Psalm 6

  LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger; *
do not punish me in your wrath.
  Have pity on me, LORD, for I am weak; *
heal me, LORD, for my bones are racked.
  My spirit shakes with terror; *
how long, O LORD, how long?
  Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; *
save me for your mercy’s sake.
  For in death no one remembers you; *
and who will give you thanks in the grave?
  I grow weary because of my groaning; *
every night I drench my bed and flood my couch with tears.
  My eyes are wasted with grief *
and worn away because of all my enemies.
  Depart from me, all evildoers, *
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
  The LORD has heard my supplication; *
the LORD accepts my prayer.
10   All my enemies shall be confounded and quake with fear; *
they shall turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
