Prayers for Before and After Bible Reading — #3

The word of our God stands forever.
                  —Isaiah 40:8


Blessed Lord, who hast caused all holy scriptures to be written for our learning: grant that we may in such wise hear, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of Thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which Thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.  —The Book of Common Prayer


O Thou who art the Lord of all good life, grant that as I have read the story of those who lived heroically for Thee, I too may be kindled to serve Thee with grace and gallantry in my day and generation; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen. —Author unknown
