Debt and Deeds
Lord, your gift of Scripture is, in this life (because our life is a life of faith), along with the gift of your Spirit, the most precious donation that you have made to your people. It is here that we encounter you. It is here that we receive your thoughts; the revelation of your intentions and purposes; the encouragement of your enormous love and grace which draws a people to yourself. And we love to see Christ the Saviour exalted in your truth because he is witnessed to throughout the entirety of these books we call the Bible. Lord, deign to have mercy upon us as we consider your truth. With all the impediments of mind and speech, we ask that your truth will prevail in our minds and seize our hearts and grip and take hold of our fascination with yourself. Quicken our trust, deepen our understanding and prompt our obedience. In Jesus Name, we pray.
