Praying for Wisdom
(based on Job 38)

Lord, you laid the earth's foundations;
you placed its cornerstone;
while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy
you set limits for the sea and said,
“This far and no further!'
You gave orders to the morning and showed the dawn its place;
you moulded the earth until it took shape.
You alone know the springs of the sea;
you alone comprehend the vastness of the universe;
you alone know the laws of heaven:
Lord, give wisdom to our hearts
and understanding to our minds. Amen.
