A Prayer for the Hearing of the Word

Grant, Almighty God, that as You shine on us by Your word, we may not be blind at midnight, nor wilfully seek darkness, and thus lull our minds asleep: but may we be roused daily by Your words, and may we stir up ourselves more and more to fear Your name and thus present ourselves and all our pursuits, as a sacrifice to You, that You may peaceably rule, and perpetually dwell in us, until You gather us to Your celestial habitation, where there is reserved for us eternal rest and glory through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.[1]

[1] A prayer from John Calvin concerning the Word of God.
