Behold the Man by Pierre Mignard, 1690 via Wikimedia Commons
Most gracious God, our heavenly Father
in whom alone dwells all fullness of light and wisdom,
enlighten our minds by your Holy Spirit
to truly understand your Word.
Give us grace to receive it reverently and humbly.
May it lead us to put our trust in you alone,
and so to serve and honor you
that we may glorify your holy name
and encourage others by setting a good example.
