Prayer for John 5:39

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

Heavenly Father, thank You for the inspired scriptures, which point us to Christ. May we 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.. knowing that eternal life is only 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 day by day - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
