Blessed Lord, by whose providence all holy scriptures
    were written and preserved for our instruction:
Give us grace to study them this and every day with patience and love.
Strengthen our souls with the fullness of their divine teaching.
Keep from us all pride and irreverence.
Guide us in the deep things of your heavenly wisdom,
    and of your great mercy lead us by your Word unto everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Brooke Foss Westcott, 1825-1901, British bishop and Biblical scholar

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true
and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.
It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
