Day 108: Prayer for the saints to build up the habit of calling on the Lord whenever they read the Bible

Pray that the saints would build up the habit of calling on the name of the Lord whenever they open the Bible to read God’s word (Psa. 119:145-149; John 5:39-40; 2 Cor. 3:6b, Hymns, #1142 ss. 1, 3 and chorus).

Psa. 119:145-149—I called with my whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah. / I will keep Your statutes. / I called upon You; save me, / And I will observe Your testimonies. / I anticipated the dawn and cried out; / I hoped in Your words. / My eyes anticipated the night watches, / That I might muse upon Your word. / Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; / O Jehovah, according to Your ordinances enliven me. 

John 5:39-40—You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me. Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

2 Cor. 3:6b—For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
