Prayer before reading the Bible

I pray to you, O Spirit of Light, of Love and True Goodness,

to lighten up the way before me.

Protect me from confusion, misunderstanding and deception; offsprings of the Evil One.

My Father, the Father of the love that I hold in my heart,

sustain me as I am doing this reading and guide me with your Wisdom

to meet the Truth wherever I go.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
