Prayer for Wisdom

A Prayer for Holy Wisdom

My constant prayer to the Beloved,
my one, sustaining need,
is that the gift of holy wisdom
shall abide in me forever.

I pray that the Merciful One
will teach me to show mercy;
that the Lover of my soul
will make me always loving;

that the All-Seeing one
will give my heart eyes;
so I will look with compassion
upon everyone I meet.

In the name of the Blessed Comforter,
may I always bring comfort;
in the name of the Abundant One
may I be generous to those in need.

Dwell within me, Sacred Spirit,
make my heart Your home
for as long as I live;
and let me dwell in You forever.
