Dearest Father in Heaven,
May You be glorified in our hearts today. I pray that we will be righteous and that our hearts will be delighted in Your law! Father, I pray for an increased interest in our hearts and minds today to long for the truth of Your Word. I pray we will hear the Word and not turn away and forget it like You warn us about in the book of James. I pray we will seek for Your truth in the pages and not be frustrated or turn away in confusion. God I pray for Your Holy Spirit to come and be the Helper Jesus said He would be. I pray Holy Spirit, that You will lead us all into truth and guide us through Scripture. Give us also human helpers, that we may learn from them, too! Praise God.
Father, I pray that Your people will read Your word not only once every day, but more than once. I pray for a morning, noon and nighttime reading, that Your Words will be on our hearts and that we will hear Your voice and become familiar with how You speak in Scripture. May our knowledge of the Bible increase our ability to hear Your Voice correctly because we know the truth.
God, I praise You that You say that when we meditate in Your law day and night, we will be like trees firmly planted by the water, like trees who yield our fruits in the right season and prosper in all we do! Holy Spirit, I pray You will remind us frequently that when we meditate on Your Word constantly, You bless us in so many ways! Give us the endurance and motivation to read (or listen to the Word!)!! Thank You for all of Your promises! May we act righteously and in obedience.
In the holy and saving Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
Psalm 1: 1-3
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.”
