A Collect to Ask for Wisdom

Lord of all knowledge, who designed creation and understands its workings, give us a thirst for understanding and the presence of mind to ask you for the wisdom we need, that we would learn well how to navigate the world you created and understand better how you are at work in it, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect wisdom. Amen. ‘ Then the disciples came and asked him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?”’ – Matthew 13:10
