Prayer for understanding

11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. (‭‭‭Psalm‬ ‭119‬‬:‭11‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus, Your word brings light to our days and guides hearts to right living.
Temptations try to flourish but Your words of life reveal their true nature and lead us to You.
Hatred and anger attempt to derail Your grace but fall silent compared to the fullness of Your living love.
Depravity and lies attempt to influence our lives yet Your word cuts through the clutter and brings hope.
Loneliness is left to the outside as we warm ourselves in the company of Your loving grace.

Lord Jesus, bless our reading and our understanding so that they will find the fullness and blessing that we need to thrive in the life that You have given to us.
May Your Holy Spirit guide us to share blessing without fear of it running out or us being lost.
Your faithfulness in stills trust and hope in the face of apathy and fear.
Lord You are the solid ground that we need to walk the bath of life and to drink the living water that quenches our thirst.

We pray this in Your holy name, Amen.
