For A Discerning Heart

Loving Father God, I pray that I accept the truth of Your Word, that I turn my ear to listen intently to Your words of wisdom, and that I open my heart to understand all you say in Your Word of truth, for I know that to treasure up Your Word in my heart is indeed wisdom, and to love and fear the Lord is the gateway to discernment.

Give me discernment in my heart I pray, and increase my knowledge and understanding so that may I come to know You more and love You better.

Guard my heart I pray, so that I may follow in Your truth all the days of my life for it is my heart-desire to know You. I ask this in Jesus' name,
