A Prayer for Wisdom
Loving Father, we give you thanks for our Lord Jesus Christ, who, even as a young boy, astounded learned men with his understanding. So focused on pleasing you was he, that he astonished his parents, even in the midst of their worry and concern. His love for and commitment to you was so great at an early age, that he knew he must be in your house. Gracious God, as our Lord Jesus, who at such a tender age knew, loved, and followed you so faithfully, enable us to do the same. Help us to increasingly grow in wisdom, stature, and in favor with you and others, even as we love and serve you and others. We humbly ask this in the name of our Savior. Amen. (from Luke 2:47-52)
