Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank and praise You for the blessing, encouragement, direction, and power of Your Word (the Bible). It is a blessing that I have unlimited access and am able to read and hear from You through Your Word about the truth of Your Word for believers and unbelievers. As a believer in Jesus Christ, You promise to go before me in whatever situations I face. Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” It is like walking in the dark woods with a light shining in front of me to show me the way and point out any dangers ahead.
Since all Scripture comes directly from You, direct me to diligently study all of Your Word and apply what I learn in my daily life. James 1:22 “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” Thank you for the work and power of Your Word in my life at the time of my salvation and that I have been born again. It is the Word of God being planted in me when I came to saving faith in Christ that gives me a new life now and for eternity.
Your Word is always used for the positive, and the Holy Spirit will continue to use it to develop me spiritually until I enter Heaven’s gates. 1 Peter 1:23 “Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.” It is the ultimate blessing to read and listen to Your Word and act accordingly because all good things flow from You, and You have revealed Yourself through Your Word. Thank you for the instructions You provide in the Bible on how to live the Christian life.
I ask for those around the world who do not have the privilege of having a Bible, that You work in miraculous ways to provide them access to a Bible in their native language so that they may know You. Amen.
