A Prayer For Honoring Scripture

“Father, Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. I pray that the light of Your Word shines forth not only in my path, but spreads out to those nearby.  As I meditate, memorize and endear Your Word to my heart I pray that meaningful Scripture will be a natural outflow of who I have become through Christ.  In honoring Your Word the power of Your Holy Spirit uses Scripture to bring conviction, instruction, and inspiration.  Help us to be faithful in reading and engrafting Your Word to our hearts so that we consistently and earnestly contend for the faith no matter the difficulty or temptation we face this day.  Amen.”
