Heavenly Father, you are the God of the Word. Let us not forget to steep ourselves in the wisdom and comfort of your Holy Scriptures. May we experience the joy of your salvation that comes from reading the message inspired by your Holy Spirit. May we run to the Bible in times of health and wealth in addition to times of trial and stress. May we encourage others to dig deeply into your Word, and come to know you and love you more fully. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3: 16-17 ESV)
