Jesus living wisdom
Shorten the distance between my head and my heart.
Teach me how to THINK WITH MY HEART
so that all my thoughts are filled with love.
Show me that wisdom is truth tasted in all its beauty.
Walk with me as I learn from life how wisdom becomes my friend.
Mary, Wise woman, pray for me
that I may receive the gift of wisdom
and the love which makes it possible.
Holy Spirit, your first gift is wisdom.
Breathe on me, breath of God, and immerse me in this gift.
Take away my fear and fill me with love.
Show me that courage is a heart that acts,
Which is a way of saying that WISDOM
FLOWS FROM THE HEART
