Gracious Lord, please keep shaping me by your word. As I read and prepare to teach from your word, please open my eyes to behold wondrous things within it. Turn my heart from the worthless things I so often elevate and help me to treasure your grace to me in Christ, and let me feed on it richly through your word. Soften my heart to respond to what you say to me, whether comfort or rebuke. Fix my heart on Christ that I may rejoice in his salvation and his joining me into your cherished people. Keep me labouring in your word and resting in your steadfast love.
