Eternal God, thank you that you are great and abundant in power, your understanding is beyond measure. Let me follow the example of Jesus who, as he grew up, increased in wisdom and stature. Help me to use my time wisely as I study that I too may grow in wisdom. Please help me to glorify you in my thoughts, words and actions. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, and power and strength, be unto you my God, forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
