Prayer for Wisdom from Daily Prayer for All Seasons

O God, your Spirit of Wisdom was present at the
creation and with Jesus at his baptism: Open our
hearts to that same Spirit, and strengthen and guide
us to love and serve you and our neighbors; through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 119

Your word is a lantern to my feet *
and a light upon my path.
I have sworn and am determined *
to keep your righteous judgments.
I am deeply troubled; *
preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.
Accept, O Lord, the willing tribute of my lips, *
and teach me your judgments.
My life is always in my hand, *
yet I do not forget your law.
The wicked have set a trap for me, *
but I have not strayed from your commandments.
Your decrees are my inheritance for ever; *
truly, they are the joy of my heart.
I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes *
for ever and to the end.
