A Prayer for Knowledge

O Wisdom from on high,

You alone teach us all things, and you alone can bring knowledge of your word where there is none,

Give me the knowledge of your word so that I may preach it faithfully to hurting souls, including mine.

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

  1. “Hurting souls, including mine.” Doctors make the worst patients sometimes. How many times has my wife or my current pastor (or my father confessor during our congregation’s recent vacancy – let the reader understand) told me to listen to what I preach? Way too many times. But that’s the way of the Old Adam. Never wants to admit he’s just as much in need of killin’ as all those people in the pews’ old Adams are.
