Litera scripta manet: A Prayer

The blog title is Latin for the written word abides. Here is the Lutheran Reformation motto for more Latin fun: verbum Domini manet in aeternum — the Word of the Lord endures forever. 

A prayer for today:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your word that is within our reach. You have spoken through your Son and by your word we are able to know you. And by knowing you, we come to find eternal life. My greatest desire today is to see just how valuable your word is. It teaches, reproofs, corrects, and helps me train in righteousness. I shouldn't wait for seminary for me to fall in love with you and your word over and over again! I come to you now, naked and needy. I pray that you open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your word. Let all that I read be translated into action for the glory of your Name.

in Jesus' name.
amen.
