O God, you contain all wisdom, hold all knowledge, hear all stories and inform all truth.
Creating God, we who live in the era of science may think we know it all. Our world seems to bypass the deep knowing that connects us to you. But our hearts need your wisdom; open us to you.
All-Knowing God, we also come to you this morning aware of how little we truly know, watching the world speed by, unable to take in all the words and images of this era of media. Expand our thoughts to include your wisdom.
God of All Times and Places, some of the old stories we know well and some we may not remember at all, but each of them holds the power to surprise and inspire us. We can learn much when we are attentive to your word. Center us and open us, inform us and expand us, we pray.
In all that we do and in all that we are, may we seek to follow the wisdom of the living Word, Jesus Christ, who came from you and is part of you and will always be part of us through your Holy Spirit. Amen.
