A Prayer Before Reading

Father God, as I sit down to read this book,
I ask you for help.
By your grace,
overcome my weariness,
dullness,
lack of focus,
and anything else that would hinder my understanding.
Help me to grasp what the author is saying,
weigh it wisely,
and by it come to a new place of understanding and experience--one that meets your approval and increases my usefulness as your servant, in Jesus' name, amen.
