A gift of contemplative prayer

A gift of contemplative prayer: from St. Augustine’s Prayer for the Seven-Fold Gift (4th Centruy AD)

1st Fold: Wisdom

Oh Holy Spirit,
Grant me the gift of WISDOM
and supernatural light.
That I may not only know God,
His infinite goodness, power and beauty,
but also may have a heart to love thee,
and a will ready to follow
Thy gracious leading.
