Amidah - Part 4 - Wisdom

In part 4 of the Amidah, we ask for guidance in matters of Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding:

You graciously bestow knowledge upon man and teach mortals understanding. Graciously bestow upon us from You, wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Blessed are You L-rd, who graciously bestows knowledge.

I have used this to pray for my children when they struggle with school, or when they need to acquire wisdom and sensitivity.  And for myself, for the same reasons....

Last week we told my 12- and 13-year olds about our intention to adopt a child with Down syndrome.  The 13 year old is dead set against it.  The 12 year old is fine with it -- she gets why we would want to do this -- but really, really wants it to be a girl, not a boy.

Please pray for both of them to gain the wisdom, understanding and knowledge they will need as we move forward with this.
