Ask For Wisdom

by Paul Mayes Jamar

If we would yet ask again
God gives wisdom liberally,
without finding fault without sin,
and it shall be given eventually.

The trouble is always us,
we must be humble, and ask,
seek God’s face in our Jesus
to be wise in our daily task.

What a promise of hope this is
to outfit the saints, and equip
them for the fight that is their biz,
against Satan, and the evil ones, we whip.

God has the power we need
to help us in life to succeed
those who draw on it are a rare breed
for planted in them is the gospel seed.

So, to seek wisdom, just ask,
and God will supply your need,
then in His intellect we will bask
knowing the truth that He does us feed.
