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.
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My Judgements and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God” (Ezekiel 36:26-28)
“To this end, I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily” (Colossians 1:29)
“To them, God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27)
