Why Wisdom

It pleased God to honor
The request of the king
Who sought only wisdom,
And the fruit that would bring.

Wisdom to serve.
Wisdom to lead
Wisdom that justice
Would be his decree.

~ ~ ~

We pray now that justice
Will come to our land
From leaders who seek
Wisdom from Your hand.

Wisdom of the mind.
Wisdom of the heart.
Leaning on You, Lord,
Let us do our part.

(I Kings 2-3)
