When we hear and study God’s Word, He works miraculously to open our eyes so that we can see the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Finding the right words to thank God for this lifesaving miracle is far from easy. In his book Pray Big, Alistair Begg draws from the prayers of the apostle Paul to put earnest words to our gratitude.
“Gracious God, thank you for opening the eyes of my heart, enabling me to see that in Christ you have given me ‘every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.’ Forgive me for the times when I allow other things to cloud my vision. Help me to live looking to Jesus, so that I can learn to view everything in light of this reality—that from you and through you and to you are all things. For Jesus’ sake. Amen.”
