Virtually everyone has heard of Catholic prayer, even if they don’t practice the religion. Prayer is a popular topic for discussion, and there are many reasons for that. Prayer can be a powerful tool for both personal growth and for tackling larger problems. In this blog post, we will offer a Catholic prayer for wisdom as an introduction to this series. ###
What are Catholic Prayers for Wisdom?
Catholic Prayers for Wisdom teach us to pray for wisdom and knowledge, so that we may lead a fulfilling life. Daily prayers can help us access the wisdom we need to make sound decisions, deal with difficult circumstances, and find happiness in our lives.
To start your day, ask Blessed Mary Help of Christians to help you discern what is truly important in your life. In addition, recite the following prayer: “O Lord God Almighty, Who hast created all things by Thy word and given them breath, Grant me understanding today and keep me from making foolish mistakes.”
Another prayer for wisdom is found in the Our Father. Say this prayer three times each day: “Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debt, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” This prayer helps remind us to think about others before ourselves and to remember that God has a plan for everyone’s life.
In addition to prayers, study scripture or consider Catholic teachings on wisdom to gain a deeper understanding of how to live wisely. Finally, strive to surround yourself with people who support your efforts to live a wise life. Wisdom comes from learning from others and growing together as a community
