Prayer For Illumination Pcusa

Dear Lord, I pray that You would open my mind to the truth of Your Word by means of the Holy Spirit. Open my eyes to see Jesus. Open my heart to love Him more and more. Open my will to do only that which is righteous in Your sight so that Your name may be glorified.

Keep me I pray, from presumptious thoughts of my own importance and give me more understanding and illumination of Jesus. Give me a deeper understanding of what it meant for Him to come to earth and set aside His glory and live a perfect life, so that He might die on the cross as the perfect sacrifice to pay the price for my sins. Lord, give me an understanding heart to truly understand what this meant for You and the tremendous cost. I scarce can take it in.

Enable me to hear Your still small voice speaking in my heart, and open my eyes to see Jesus in every page of Your Word. Open the eyes of my heart my Father, and show me more and more of Jesus I pray. In Jesus' name,


Dear Lord and God, I thank and praise You for Your Word, the Holy Scriptures, and for the promise that Your Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth. Give me a teachable spirit so that I may learn all that You would teach me in Your Word and prevent me from falling into deceptive teaching or false doctrine.

Lord, I ask that by Your Holy Spirit, You would open my mind to the truth and give me discernment so that I am not tossed about by every wind of doctrine. Thank You for what You are teaching me in Your Word and give me a thirst to read, mark learn and inwardly digest all that You would have me learn.

Lead me in the path off righteousness and guide me into all truth for Your holy names sake. Help me to come to a deeper knowledge of the Lord Jesus, so that I may grow in grace. Keep me from pride I pray, and may I walk humbly before You all the days of my life. I ask this in the precious name of my Saviour, Jesus Christ my Lord,


Prepare my heart Lord as I come before You today and I pray that You would give me a spirit of wisdom and understanding. Lord I pray for illumination of Your Word and that You would open my eyes to the truth of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ and the great sacrifice He made for me at Calvary.

Thank You for all that You have done for me and Lord.. It is my desire Lord, to be used in Your service and to walk in Your ways and so I come to You Lord as for Your guidance in my path through life and for illumination of Your Word, so that I may be used by You in the service of others and to the glory of Your name. Lord, I don't know which way to go and I ask You to guide my thoughts and prayers and to open my heart to all that You are showing me.

Guide me Lord in the direction You would have me go. Illumine my heart with a deeper awareness of Your precious Word and give me the grace to love You more and serve You better in the place where You have placed me in Jesus name I pray,


How we praise and thank You for the holy Scriptures which You have caused to be written for our learning. Thank You for Your written Word, which reveals to us the living Word of God, in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that in Him has been revealed all wisdom and grace, all knowledge and understanding, all truth and hope, all life and light. And thank You Father, that in Him You have spoken to us, Your children.

Father, we now pray that you would illumine our minds more and more as we look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Open our eyes to see wondrous things in Your Word of truth. Open our ears to hear Your still small voice speaking to us the Words of life. And open our minds and cleanse our thoughts so that Your Holy Spirit may guide us into all truth. May we be increasingly willing to submit to His gentle promptings, so that He may guide us into Your way of peace. In Jesus' name I pray,


Living God,
help us so to hear your holy Word
that we may truly understand;
that, understanding, we may believe
and believing,
we may follow in all faithfulness and obedience,
seeking your honor and glory in all that we do;
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

God our helper,
by your Holy Spirit, open our minds
that as the Scriptures are read
and your Word is proclaimed,
we may be led into your truth
and taught your will,
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Gracious God,
we do not live by bread alone, but by
every word that comes from your mouth.
Make us hungry for this heavenly food,
that it may nourish us today
in ways of eternal life;
through Jesus Christ,
the bread of heaven. Amen.

Guide us, O God,
by your Word and Spirit,
that in your light we may see light,
in your truth find wisdom,
and in your will discover your peace,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
