For Your Word

Lord God, I praise you for your Word and its words.
I praise you for every syllable and every stroke in its pages.
I praise you for the sanctified thoughts of every biblical author,
and the painstaking care of every scribe;
for its miraculous preservation and propagation over millennia;
for the translators who studied and worked
to make the message plain.

I praise you for its availability in my lifetime.
I praise you for the times—few though they are—I have heard and heeded it.
I praise you for its immeasurable influence on my life,
my home,
my family,
my culture,
my country,
my world,
my age,
in Jesus’ name, amen.
