Before study

Dear Lord,

Before I attempt to study your word or apply anything to my life, let me first acknowledge my spiritual poverty. I bring absolutely nothing to the table. I have nothing to offer you for myself. I completely rest in your mercy and compassion for my safety. The only reason I am able to enjoy life and be taken care of is because you have ordained it to be so. Help me cultivate a life of submission to you. Not only to obey but to love to obey. to desire your Word. Lord, so many Psalms and Proverbs talk about loving your Word, Law, Precepts. Let me come to a place of love for your law like that. I want to cherish deeply every word of yours.

Let my heart continue to rotate toward your light. You are truth, the solid foundation. Nothing else will give me peace. Nothing else will give me an unending supply of strength. Nothing else is true, unless it was sent out from you to reflect your glory. Even then, you are the only Truth.
