The manner of the world, full of feigns and lies,
Circuitous logic, our minds hung out to dry.
Illumine our thoughts, O Lord, acquaint us, your designs,
A spirit of understanding,
Open our hearts,
Free our minds.
“The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him:
a spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
a spirit of counsel and of strength,
a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD,
and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD.”
~ Isaiah 11:2
