A Collect for Understanding of the Scriptures

Spirit of Christ, who dwells within us and speaks to our hearts, enlighten us to understand the scriptures, that we would not merely hear and go about our lives, but would take in your words and your wisdom to live as you designed and flourish as you intend, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Father in perfect harmony, forever and ever. Amen. ‘Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you–that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures.’ – Luke 24:44-45
