Dear Lord and God I thank and praise You for Your Word, the Holy Scriptures and for the promise that Your Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth. Give me a teachable spirit so that I may learn all that You would teach me in Your word and prevent me from falling into deceptive teaching or false doctrine.
Lord I ask that by Your Holy Spirit You would open my mind to the truth and give me discernment so that I am not tossed about by every wind of doctrine. Thank You for what You are teaching me in Your Word and give me a thirst to read, mark learn and inwardly digest all that You would have me learn.
Lead me in the path off righteousness and guide me into all truth for Your holy names sake and help me to come to a deeper knowledge of the Lord Jesus, so that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him – and of all that You would have me learn. Keep me from pride I pray and may I walk humbly before You all the days of my life – I ask this in the precious name of my Saviour, Jesus Christ my Lord,
