Prayer Before Reading The Bible

Prayer before reading the Bible

Merciful God, anoint me with your Holy Spirit.

And as I read your word, let me hear your voice speaking to me from within.

Give me wisdom to understand your message to me.

Let your word be the joy of my heart and the lamp to my feet.

Give me strength to build my life on your word.

Let it be done unto me according to your word.

May I rejoice in the blessedness of hearing your word and keeping it.

Speak Lord, your servant is listening…

Thank you Jesus… Praise you Lord
