The Prayer of Preparation To Open The Word

Our Father,

Your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.


Your word is sweeter than honey and more precious than gold.


Your word goes out from your mouth and does not return to you
empty but accomplishes all the purposes for which you send it.

(Isaiah 55:11)

Your word is the sword of the Spirit, sharper than a double edged
sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and
marrow; it judges the thoughts and intents of the heart.

(Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12)

For we do not live by bread alone but by every word that comes

from the mouth of God.
(Matthew 4:4)

Thank you for sending us the Holy Spirit, who inspired the
Scriptures, who inspires us in their hearing and who indwells us

with power to obey them.

(2Peter 1:21; 1Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16)
Speak now Lord, for your servants, who are your sons and

daughters, are listening.
(1Samuel 3:10)

Praying in the name of the Father and the Son and

the Holy Spirit.

* This prayer comes from the “Romans” devotional produced by Seedbed Ministry.
