Sirach 51:13-30: Prayer for Those in Pursuit of Wisdom

Sunday, September 4, 2016wisdom's path

We have considered our pursuit of Wisdom and acknowledged her importance in our lives. We have surrendered to the passionate search for Wisdom and all she promises. We have set our feet on Wisdom’s path, committed to the pursuit of Wisdom’s gifts. And so today we pray.

Lady Wisdom, we ask that you bless our hearts with authenticity and integrity.

Creator God, we thank you for your gift of Wisdom.

Lady Wisdom, we ask that you steer us away from the lure of Mistress Folly.

Generous God, we know that you are faithful to us and hear our prayer.

Lady Wisdom, we ask that you help us to guard against deceit.

Knowing God, we pledge to abide with you as you abide with us.

Lady Wisdom, we mediate on God’s law morning, noon and night.

Faithful God, we thank you for the invitation to enter into Jesus’ Law of Love.

Lady Wisdom, we plant our feet along the river that calls forth good fruit.

Lady Wisdom, we follow in the way of the just.

Loving God, continue to teach us the way of your Lady Wisdom.

Lady Wisdom, we thank you for your voice that cries out, inviting all to come to your banquet.

Holy God, we thank you for your gift of eternal life. Amen.

Psalms 1 and 101 open for us an entrance to the path of Lady Wisdom.  When we spend time with them we discover the feast she offers.
