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.
“Lord, answer me because your love is so good. Because of your great kindness, turn to me. DO not hide from me, your servant. I am in trouble. Hurry to help me! Come near and save me; rescue me from my enemies” (Psalm 69:16-18)
“I love the Lord because he listens to my prayers for help. He paid attention to me so I will call to him for help as long as I live” (Psalm 116:1-2)
“I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future. Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will search for me. And when you search for me with all your heart, you will find me!” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
