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 hope you're glorified

Dear God, I hope you're glorified by my life, with the choices that I make every day that don't seem important in the present, but perhaps they are in the long-run.

May you find pleasure in my joy and return tender mercies for my failings, and I pray for all of it to bring you the glory you deserve. Your glory shines over all the earth! In Jesus' wonderful name, Amen.
