Prayer for 2 Peter 1

Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your grace and mercy You used bond-servants, apostles and prophets such as Simon Peter to reveal Yourself, Your plans and Your purposes to someone such as me, through Your Word of truth.

Open my understanding to all that You would teach me in Your Word and use me to encourage others in their Christian walk. Help me I pray to earnestly contend for the faith once offered to the saints - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
