Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your word and will into our lives for your glory.
“Ask, and God will give to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And everyone who knocks will have the door opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)
“Without faith, no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who truly want to find him” (Hebrew11:6)
“And this is the boldness we have in God’s presence; that if we ask God for anything that agrees with what he wants, he hears us. If we know he hears us every time, we ask him, we know we have what we ask from him. (1 John 5:14-15)
