O Sapientia: O Wisdom, who didst issue out of the mouth of the most High, and dost reach from one end of the world to the other, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.

Pray in song the second verse of O Come, O Come Emmanuel:
Spend 5-15 minutes in complete silence, listening to God.
“Happy is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors.” (Prov. 8:34)
Because of Christ and the Holy Spirit, we are able to converse with our Creator God. Today, put yourself on the listening side of the conversation. Don’t strive or analyze, just sit in quiet and notice what comes to your mind and heart. Trust God to speak in love and truth.
