Dear Heavenly Father, Please open the truth and meaning of the Bible to us and show us your love, truth, mercy, and compassion. When we need answers from you, please show us the verse that answers our need. When we are puzzled and confused, please show us the page of your word that gives us clear thinking. When we are lost, please show us how others were lost but were found by using you Holy words of scripture. Please turn the pages of our lives and give us a verse to straighten out our thoughts. When we read your Holy Word, please infuse in us your power. When our heart wants to run away from your truth, please show us your truth that strengthens and renews us. When our hearts are hurting, please show us the comfort of your words. Please write your words on our hearts and souls just as you wrote your words on the scrolls so long ago. When we have grown tired and we have no hope, please show us your scripture that gives hope, life, truth, and power. When we are imprisoned, please show us your words that give the power to free us from the chains of our oppressor. When all looks bleak, please show us the power of your words that enlighten us and give us your promises. When we think we are alone, please show us you are with us by the power of your holy word. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen.
