In 2002 I placed this reading from the Book of Ecclesiastes in my prayer journal about wisdom.
Since that date I have prayed that God would also give me wisdom and understanding.
I thought you might find this reading helpful like I did.
Blessings, love, and hugs, Fr. Jack.
A Reading (lesson) from the Book of Ecclesiastes (51:13-22)
While I was still young, before I went on my travels, I sought wisdom openly in my prayer.
Before the temple I asked for her, and will search for her to the last. From blossom to ripening grape my heart delighted in her; my foot entered upon the straight path; from my youth I followed her steps.
I inclined my ear a little and received her, and I for found for myself much instruction.
I made progress therein; to him who gives me wisdom, and I will give, glory.
For I resolved to live according to wisdom, and I was zealous for the good; and shall never be put to shame.
My soul grappled with wisdom, and in my conduct I was strict; I spread out my hands to the heavens
and lamented my ignorance of her. I directed my soul to her, and through purification I found her.
I gained understanding with her from the first, therefore I will not be forsaken.
My heart was stirred to seek her, therefore I have gained a good possession.
The Lord gave me a tongue as my reward, and I will praise him with it.
