Pray for Wisdom and Understanding

August 4, 2014

Luke 24:45

45 And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.


Since we have been talking about prayer and the Bible and trying to focus on these disciplines as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ I thought this verse was very pertinent for us. This verse popped out this morning as I was reading in Luke and is a great bridge to our understanding of prayer and understanding God’s Word.

For many of us scripture can be totally foreign and difficult. In fact some passages are very deep. We must understand that God is key to unlocking scripture.

HE alone can reveal all scripture to us. So that we may continue to grow in our understanding of the scriptures.

James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

So as you set time aside to read God’s Holy Living Word, set aside time to pray about your reading. Ask God to reveal His truths to you. To open your heart and your mind so you may understand and grow in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Also continuously ask the Lord throughout the day, every time scripture, or something of God pops in your head ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding in these things.


Heavenly Father may you give me a hunger and a thirst for your Word. As I read your Living Word may you open my heart and mind to your infinite wisdom. Give me the understanding I need to continue to grow in my love for you. As I read your Word, renew my mind and teach me your unfailing truths. In Jesus Name Amen!!
