Prayers for Before and After Bible Reading — #1

Be doers of the word, and not hearers only.
                                   —James 1:22


Blessed Lord, by whose providence all holy scriptures were written and preserved for our instruction, give us grace to study them this and every day with patience and love. Strengthen our souls with the fullness of their divine teaching. Keep from us all pride and irreverence. Guide us in the deep things of Thy heavenly wisdom, and of Thy great mercy lead us by Thy Word unto everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  —Brook Foss Westcott


Grant, O God, that that which I have read with my eyes and understood with my mind and received into my memory, I may now go out to show forth in my life. Grant that what I have learned by Thy grace I may use to Thy glory; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.  —Author unknown

As your years grow long may your
love of the Word grow deep.
