Heavenly Father, shine the pure light of Your Word of truth into our hearts today and open the eyes of our minds to comprehend the nuggets of truth that are contained within this precious passage of Scripture.
Thank You for Your Word. Your Word is truth and life and health and light. It is nourishment for our souls and refreshment to our spirits, and Lord, we desire to study Your Word through the guidance of Your Holy Spirit, so that we grow in grace and spiritually mature in the faith, as we press on toward the goal of our high calling, striving to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus.
As we study Your Word, may Your name be exalted and lifted up, for You alone are worthy of praise and worship for You alone are holy and good, gracious and of great mercy. Open our eyes to see Your truth. Open our ears to hear Your voice. Open our hearts to receive what You have for each one of us, and open our lips to speak only that which glorifies Your name. In Jesus' name we pray,
