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.
You alone are the source of all knowledge and truth, and you are the One who makes us wise, using what you have given us to your glory and the edification of all.
Teach me to use the suffering and hardships that I have faced for wisdom, learning to love my neighbor as myself, and to make me a better, more faithful pastor.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
