A Prayer for Your Time in God's Word

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. - Psalm 119:18

Quoting Isaiah, the apostle Paul wrote, "'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him' -- but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). God's Spirit knows God's thoughts. When the believer reads God's Word, it is the Spirit of God, living within us, who reveals God's words and thoughts to us.

Today's passage, then, is a prayer of preparation for our Bible reading. Our minds can be distracted. We can simply read the Bible to check if off for the day. Prior to reading God's Word, here is a prayer we should pray.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me Your Word. Thank You for the privilege of opening it and reading it today. I admit to You that I am in a hurry. I am busy and distracted. So please slow me down. Help me focus. Keep distractions away. Help me listen to things in Your Word that I need to hear. Use Your Word to point out areas of sin that I need to confess. Open my eyes to blind spots that I keep missing. Show me where I am off track. Open my eyes to a biblical perspective of where I am and where I should be. Instruct me regarding business interactions. Help me understand and apply Your instructions. Guide me regarding my relationships. I desire to be a godly parent. Open my eyes to Your Word that will help me raise my children according to Your ways. Lord, I desire to know You more fully and deeply. Speak to me in a new and fresh way through Your Word. Father, please open my eyes to see the wonderful truths You have for me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
