From chapter 8 of “The 21 Most Effective Prayers of the Bible”

“A careful study of the book of Proverbs reveals wisdom to be the diligently acquired art of skillful living. It is the careful cultivation of a God-centered, Christ-like, character-driven, common-sense way of living. Wisdom is the path that leads to God. It is characterized by righteousness, mercy, tact, humility, discipline, respect for authority, “teachability,” and honesty. So, when given the opportunity to ask God for anything, Solomon asked for wisdom. “Give me wisdom” is one of the most effective prayers found in the pages of Scripture, and one God loves to answer.” – Dr. Dave Earley
