For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Almighty God, of Justice, Peace and Mercy, your Holy Word has been given us by our Redeemer, your beloved Son Jesus. He has explained and directed, exhorted and instructed how to be obedient to it, for it signifies your Divine Providence for us, to follow with complete discernment and application in our daily lives, as food and nourishment for the soul, bringing it to righteousness.
Your Holy Word is the word of eternal life. Its precepts, promises, warnings, prepares our hearts, minds and souls to adhere to your Truth and follow the Light of the world, executing spiritually, all it contains for purifying us to walk in the Spirit dwelling within us. For we have been saved by Christ and are alive in the spirit, having died to sin with Jesus and living in him for the glory of your Name.
Every Christian appointed by you to sonship and citizenship as co-heirs along with Jesus, Who is making a place for us in your Kingdom, is committed to following your Word, which is alive and discovers the innermost, secret, recesses of our soul, penetrating it to reveal the extent of its sanctification. Help us Lord, through your Holy Spirit, to move forward wisely and cautiously, divining your Will for us and enlightened and spiritually discerning, lead vituous lives in Jesus’ Name. Amen
