A Collect to Avoid Becoming Overly Proud of Our Wisdom

Lord of heaven and earth, the fount of all true wisdom, keep us from becoming arrogant and certain of our own wisdom, that we would not cease to be open and seeking from you and from places unexpected and simple, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.’ – Matthew 11:25-26
