Prayers for Illumination on the Bible

Prayers for illumination on the Bible

Adapted from Psalm 119:105

O Lord, your Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Give us grace to receive your truth in faith and love, and strength to follow on the path you set before us; through Jesus Christ, Amen.  

Living God, help us so to hear your holy Word that we may truly understand; that, understanding, we may believe and believing, we may follow in all faithfulness and obedience, seeking your honor and glory in all that we do; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Huldrych Zwingli

Almighty God, in you are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Open our eyes that we may see the wonders of your Word; and give us grace that we may clearly understand and freely choose the way of your wisdom; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Eternal God, your Spirit inspired those who wrote the Bible and enlightens us to hear your Word fresh each day.  Help us to rely always on your promises in Scripture.  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
