God. Abba. Father.

Sometimes our eyes are weary. We look for you but do not see you. We seek to understand your ways but confess we lack understanding. Our prayer today, Lord, we ask you to give us your eyes to see the world, to see our situations, to see our friends and even our enemies the way you see them. Give our hearts the eyes to see your hope and your glory. Give us eyes to see you clearly.

We pray for wisdom and understanding today, Lord. May your word teach us your truths. Those who rebel against you discard your truths. They do not respect your revelation, nor your word. Pierce their hearts as you have ours. Show them your mercy, your love, and your grace. Jesus, who is the Word who brings life, came for them as He came for us. Move in all our hearts. Use us to reach those who reject you.

We love you and we love your word. It is more valuable than fat bank accounts or fancy cars or big houses. Teach us to value the time we invest in reading, studying, praying, and talking about you and your truths. Everything you have spoken to us is right and good and just and wise and for our benefit. Keep us on the true path and guide us, for we do not want to go where you have not led.

We thank you for Jesus, our shepherd.

In His name we pray.
