*Prayer for Nigeria and River’s state (Wisdom, peace, etc.)* – Pst Egbouvie Charles EMEM
Wisdom is the Principal thing
“Love wisdom, and she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will bring you honour.
Listen to me, my child.
Take seriously what I am telling you, and you will live a long life.
Nothing will stand in your way if you walk wisely, and you will not stumble when you run. Always remember what you have learnt. Your education is your life — guard it well.” Proverbs 4:8, 10, 12-13 GNB
wisdom makes one understand the need for the moment. Ability to rightly prioritize the competing needs
A wise person is able to judge correctly and choose the best cause of action after analyzing all the facts and data available to you.
