Prayer For Wisdom

I ask You, God, for wisdom good... To guide my heart and
soul... That I may fill my place on earth...And I may
reach my goal... I do not want the wisdom, God,... That
leads to prominence... But just the kind that faithful souls
... Consider common sense... The common sense to under-
-stand... That life belongs to You...And only by Your
loving grace...Is anything we do... The wisdom to be
faithful and... To serve Your holy will... To choose the
right from wrong, and all... My promises fulfill... I
pray to You for wisdom, God... To do the best I can... To
prove I love You by the way... I love my fellowman.
