Oh, Lord, let Your Word change me. Let it seep into the deepest parts of my heart and my soul and renew and transform me. Let me receive Your words and treasure Your commands within me, so that I may incline my ear to wisdom. Help me to seek for Your wisdom and understanding as though I am seeking for hidden treasures, so that I will understand the fear of You and find the knowledge of You.
Help me hide Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. Help me to cleanse my way by taking heed according to Your Word. When I seek You, Lord, I will want more of You and will not want to wander from Your commandments. Oh, Lord, that I would seek You more. Lord, that I would look for the wisdom You have stored up for me.
Lord, let me hear the wisdom, the knowledge, and the understanding that comes from Your mouth. Then, Lord I will understand righteousness and justice, and every good path. Lord, when those things come into my heart, they will preserve and keep me. Those gifts from You will deliver me from the way of evil and keep me to the paths of righteousness. With Your Word hidden in my heart, Lord, I will walk in the way of goodness and dwell with You forever.
I love you, Lord, and I long to know You more. I want to be close to You now and forever. I want You alone to be my God and my King. I want You alone to be my Father and my Savior, my Redeemer and my Guide. Guard me as a shield as I walk on Your paths, Lord, according to Your Word.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
