Pray With Us: Love for God’s Word
Lord, You have told us to write Your word upon our hearts and minds, and to teach it to our children (Deuteronomy 11:18-19). The Apostle John makes it clear that Jesus is the very embodiment of the Word (John 1). To love Your word is to love Jesus. To love Your word is to live a healthy, abundant, loving life that glorifies You.
Father, I confess I often put reading Your word last in my “things to do.” Help me to make this my priority. Show me how Your word transforms my life and brings joy not only to me, but to my family and my community. Speak to me in the morning and when I lay my head on my pillow at night.
Holy Spirit, help me to have ears to hear Your voice and eyes to see You move as I read the greatest love letter in the universe. Help me love the Word of God.
