Lord, I need wisdom--no matter what it costs

"Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." (Proverbs 4:6-7)

Dear Lord God, 

I need your wisdom.

I'm afraid of what it will cost me to learn,

but I want it anyway.

It's the only way to survive this life

and live it for you.

I'm beginning to understand that

godly wisdom is expensive to get.

The more I seek you,

the more I become a target.

The more I want you,

the more the world tries to lure me in.

It's wisdom I need

and wisdom that will save and protect me.

Surround me with your mighty angels.

Fill me with your powerful Spirit.

Anoint me with your calling.

Humble me so I recognize where you're at work

and when I'm interfering with your work.

Help me walk in your Spirit and hear your voice.

Give me your wisdom--

don't allow me to attain intelligence or cunning instead.

Then I will have wisdom in all my decisions.

Then I will have peace about the choices I'm making

and accept the cost of following you.

Wisdom will present me with a crown of splendor (Prov. 4:9),

which I will lay exclusively at your feet.

Only you

in me.

In Jesus' mighty name,
