Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt. He was wiser than anyone else, including Ethan the Ezrahite—wiser than Heman, Kalkol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations. He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. - 1 Kings 4:30-32
Dear Heavenly Father,
Solomon asked for wisdom and you gave it to him, just like that. I want wisdom too. I have learned a lot of wisdom from your word especially from Solomon and his writings but I am asking now that you give me more wisdom so I use my life for the greatest cause, the greatest good in the greatest way. I need your wisdom to navigate the troubled waters in relationships and to figure out how to order my schedule so I don't stay busy about trivial things. I need your wisdom to tell the difference between forgiveness and indifference, between godly tolerance and licentiousness. I need your wisdom to know how to find peace when disappointment keeps knocking on my door. I need your wisdom in a hundred more ways that only you see. By grace please visit me with your Holy Spirit and give me wisdom to live my life as you always intended it to be lived.

Wisdom from God is pure, maturing, calming and inspiring all at the same time.
