A Collect to Understand the Scriptures

Spirit of Wisdom, who knows all things and reveals hidden things to your children, guide us as we seek to understand the scriptures you have provided for us, that we would not be led astray by our own biases or lenses, but hear your voice clearly and grow to live as you desire us to in the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Father desires good for all your creation. Amen. ‘ Then he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have declared! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures.’ – Luke 24:25-27
