Opening Prayer

Lord Jesus, we need Your Spirit of Wisdom. InSpirit us that we might see others, see ourselves, and see all situations as God sees them. Give us divine insight to know more and the connections that are not obvious. You are our strength, Jesus, even though we proudly try to glide on our own resources. You are our head – keep us faithful to You as the Shepherd of Wisdom. Empower us to be faithful to You and Your values of life, especially when cowardice, inconvenience, criticism or peer pressure overwhelms us.
