Prayer for John 5:39

“You pore over the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me.”

Praying through John 5:39

Heavenly Father, thank You for the inspired Scriptures which point me to Christ. May I read them with understanding and be guided into all truth by Your Holy Spirit. Keep me from seeking to add to Your finished work of Calvary through my own works of the flesh. I know that eternal life is to be found by faith in Christ alone, and that I am only accepted by You because I am 'in Christ' and not because of anything that I could do. Praise His holy name, and draw me closer to Jesus as I read the Scriptures, day by day. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
