Wisdom’s Wooing

Now unto us all,

each are called to hear;

listen and be wise,

grant God heart and ear.

For those who listen,

and follow His word;

wisdom is granted,

His blessings are heard.

Keep watch at the door,

be daily at wait;

to answer His call,

do not hesitate.

Whomever finds God,

finds favor and life;

yet to deny Him,

leads to harm and strife.

Rejoice in Presence,

may we find delight,

as we pursue Him,

and choose what is right.

(Responding to Proverbs 8:31-36)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we seek You, we find You, and when we ask, You answer.  Lead us in love, to ask for wisdom, so that we may better understand Your word and walk more boldly in Your way.  Forgive us for hesitating, and help us to both ask and answer as we are prompted by Your Spirit, who is our ever-present help.  Teach us to be watching and waiting expectantly for You always, and may we choose to rejoice, regardless of our circumstances.  May many come to know Your favor and the fullness of life found in You, as we live and love, reflecting Your light to all whom we encounter.  Amen.
