Prayer: Aelred of Rievaulx

My God, you know what a fool I am. My weakness is not hidden from your sight. Therefore, Lord, I ask you not for gold, I ask you not for silver, nor for jewels, but only that you would give me wisdom. O font of wisdom, send her from your throne of might to be with me, to work with me, to act in me, to speak in me, to order all my thoughts and words and deeds and plans according to you the glory of your name.
