Open the understanding of my mind

O God, I am unworthy of the least of Thy favors. I freely acknowledge my need for understanding. I pray for Thy favor to rest upon my life, but know it cannot unless I so live that You can bless me with Thy Presence.

Help me, O God; guide me; strengthen me; open my under standing of Thy mind, will, and way. In return, I promise to serve Thee more faithfully and effectively.

Do Thou help me, for Jesus’ sake.

Amen.
