Before Opening Your Bible

This prayer was taught to me by my mother many years ago. It is still so very valuable.


Before opening the pages of your Bible,
ask the Holy Spirit to be your Teacher and Guide.

Father God,

I ask that You send Your Holy Spirit to be my Guide as I open Your Holy Word.

I ask that You open my eyes, that I may read Your Word.

I ask that you would open my ears, that I may hear Your Word.

I ask that you would open my mind, that I may understand Your Word.

I ask that You would open my mouth, that I may speak Your Word.

And Lord I ask that You would open my heart, so that Your Word will come and live in me.

Thank You Father God, I pray this in the name of Your Son Jesus. Amen.
