Lord Jesus Christ, thank you that you possess infinite riches of wisdom, goodness and power. You have said that if I accept your words, turn my ear to wisdom and apply my heart to understanding, then I will find the wisdom and knowledge of God. Remind me as I study, that everything I have is a gift from you. May the peace of God reign in my life, the love of God surround me, the Spirit of God empower me and the joy of God uphold me. In your powerful name, Amen.
