You are the source of all knowledge and wisdom. You have given us Your Word as a guide and a source of understanding. I come before You today, asking for the ability to comprehend and apply Your teachings in my life. Grant me a spirit of discernment and insight as I study Your Word. Help me to see beyond the surface and grasp the deeper meanings and truths that You have embedded in Your scriptures.

In Your infinite wisdom, You have revealed Your truths to us through the Bible. Open my heart and mind to receive and understand Your message. Give me the patience and dedication to dig deep into Your Word, to seek knowledge and wisdom that will edify my spirit. Let Your Word come alive in my heart and transform me into the person You have called me to be.

I know that understanding Your Word is not something I can accomplish on my own. I need Your guidance and illumination to see and comprehend the depths of Your teachings. Help me to apply what I learn in my daily life, so that I can be a light to others and bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
