Dear Lord, lead, guide, and tend me this day without Your restraining rod I err and stray. Hedge up my path lest I wander into unwholesome pleasure. Direct my feet that I be not entangled in Satan's secret snares, nor fall into his hidden traps.
I pray to be able to read the Bible and learn Your truth. Give me the spirit of understanding and wisdom, for You know how difficult it can be sometimes. Let me understand and absorb the words in Your Bible, dear God, and let me see beyond the words on the page and know Your true and full Word, Jesus Christ.
Oh Heavenly Father, in whom I live and move and have my being, I humbly pray You so to guide and govern me by your Holy Spirit, that in all the joys, occupations, and cares of this day I may never forget you, but remember that I am ever walking in your sight. In Christ's name, I pray.
