Prayers for Bible Reading

John Piper suggests these four prayers as we prepare our hearts for Bible reading:

  1.  Open my eyes to wonder, the wonder of God’s Word (Psalm 119:18).
  2.  Have mercy on me! (Luke 18:38, 13).
  3.  Make me a doer of Your Word (James 1:22)
  4.  Open my eyes to Jesus (Luke 24:45
