August 28 prayer
Wisdom prepares. It is awake and ready. Matt.25
Wisdom consists of doing the next thing you have to do, doing it with your whole heart. Finding delight in doing it’
Meister Eckhart -14th century Monk
We all lack wisdom, because in and of ourselves we hold our own thoughts and ways.
To be able to admit we do not have all the answers nor all the questions is to bow low before the One who does.
His alone understands the way to wisdom and where her place is. It is in holy reverence of the God who holds all things together .that we will find wisdom and understanding and when we avoid that which is evil.
He is the One who will guide us with his loving kindness and wisdom if we chose to follow his lead .
Where do you need wisdom today ?
Pause and offer up your whole heart to be awakened to his wisdom and understanding .
St Augustine prays; ’ My soul is like a house, small for you to enter, but I pray you to enlarge it. It is in ruins, but I ask you to remake it.’
‘’Lord, come and show us the way forward to follow you in true wisdom in our hearts. Make us open to becoming whole in all we do and think.
We admit that our hearts are in ruins and trust in you to remake and renew them .
Let us find the wisdom way that leads to delight as we take one step closer to you with bowed hearts and bend our wills in surrender to yours.
‘Teach us to number our days and guide our steps in wisdom ‘ Ps.90:12
Have your way in us and lead us to do the next thing you have for us to do, with reverence and delight.
Praise be to the One who fills our days with your faithful love.
May we all bring Your love to others in our actions, our words and deeds.
‘At dawn fill us with your faithful love, we shall delight and rejoice in all our days’ Ps. 90
