Praying with Paul: 'Living in Wisdom'

Ephesians 5:15-21

Dear Father,

Fill me with your heavenly wisdom, which involves alertness to problems and opportunities, avoidance of addictions, fullness of your Spirit, overflowing joy, and constant thanksgiving!

For your heavenly wisdom is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial, and sincere. And true wisdom begins with awesome reverence for you!

To you be all the glory, honor, and dominion. Forever and ever!

In the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
