Heavenly Father, please help us to keep valuing your word. Help us to rejoice in it, knowing that we hear the gospel through it and find salvation. Help us to crave it and feed on it knowing that it grows us up in Christ; and continues to shape us to be like Christ; and strengthens us to keep our hope in Christ. May we not drift away from it but let it shape our mission as well as our methods. May we put our confidence in it and long for others to hear it so that they may know your salvation in Christ.
