"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105

It can be dark out there at times. Be it the world around us, the political/economic situation, difficult relationships, or just life in general. At times we don't know where to turn, which direction to go. It's like we are wandering around in the dark in a strange place. We need a guide to direct us. We need a clear path. We need someone to turn the light on. When we add the reading of the Holy Bible to our daily prayer time, things seem brighter and the path ahead seems more sure. Life in general is more hopeful. It is the difference between night and day.

Lord, we thank you for your Holy Word. May we never forget the riches that await us within its pages. As we open its pages and begin to read and as we make the reading of your Word a daily discipline, enlighten the path of our lives. Remind us, Lord, that as a lamp needs to be turned on before it can emit light, your Word must be opened, read and obeyed in order to illuminate our lives. Then, when we are walking in your light, may we bring that light to others we meet along life's journey. Amen.
