Heavenly Father, how precious to know that You are our God. Lord, I just want to know You more and to love You better. It is the yearning of my heart to know more of You and to grow closer to You with every passing day.
As I read Your Word and study the Scriptures, I pray that You would help me to embrace all that You would teach me and I ask that You would develop in me a teachable spirit, which is quick to hear Your voice speaking to me and ready and willing to respond to the gentle promptings of the Holy Spirit in my heart.
It says in Your Word that Your people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, and Lord, I pray that You would help me to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest all that You would teach me in the Scriptures, for I want to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in me, and I desire to share the truth of the glorious gospel of grace with all I meet. Into Your hands I give my life, and pray that I may live each day to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
