A prayer for Wisdom

Lord Jesus, teach me, like Mary, to sit at your feet, and to hear your word. Give me that true wisdom, which seeks your will by prayer and meditation, by direct intercourse with you, more than by reading and reasoning. Give me the discernment to know your voice from the voice of strangers, and to rest upon it and to seek in it the first place, as something external to myself; and answer me through my own my, if I worship and rely on you as above and beyond it.

John Henry Newman
