Day 30 - 40 Day Prayer Pledge
Posted on March 26 2020
Blessed are those who have discovered wisdom, those who have acquired understanding! Gaining her is more rewarding than silver, her yield is more valuable than gold. Proverbs 3:13-14
True wisdom comes from God. It gives us the ability to see ourselves, the world around us, and other people as God sees them. And when that happens, we know better what we should do and say, and how we should act. How deeply do I desire wisdom? How often do I ask the Holy Spirit to give me this gift? Do I know anyone who is truly wise? Thank God for those people. Reread the verse, slowly, maybe even out loud: consider how eager God is to teach you true wisdom, and humbly ask for the grace to be able to learn.

A Prayer of Petition
Lord, let my inner life be innocent and my outer behavior modest.
Let my speech be blameless and my life well-ordered.
May I take care to master my natural impulses; let me cherish growth in grace.
May I keep your law, and come at last to win salvation.
Teach me to realize how slight are earthly things and how great is that which is divine.
How swiftly things of time pass, and how enduring are eternal realities.
Help me prepare for death and have right fear of judgement;
May I escape hell and take possession of heaven.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Pope Clement XI
