As followers of Christ, we know that wisdom is just a prayer away. But keep in mind that God's thoughts are not man's thoughts--they are higher even as the heavens are higher than the earth. Therefore, the wisdom you receive from God will not always make sense to the secular world.
When the psalmist needed wisdom, he sought God's commandments along with largeness of heart. May that be our request when we ask God for wisdom to deal with the issues of today. May all our "solutions" for the problems of the world be tempered with God's grace, mercy, and love.
