Prayer

 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly”  Colossians 3:16

Lord Jesus, thank you for coming to us as the living Word.  Thank you that through the faithfulness of scribes and translators we can receive your help and encouragement today.   We pray for all those who teach your word to others; for those in countries where Bibles are scarce; and for those who need your insight to understand the words.  In your name we pray, amen.
