From A Simple Book of Prayers

Acquiring the Knowledge of God

Lord, I give thanks for Your greatness, Your goodness, and Your love; and I now draw near to enjoy Your presence.

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know!
Or who stretched the line across it?
On what were its bases sunk,
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:4–7)

You revealed Yourself to Moses as “I AM WHO I AM.” (Exodus 3:14)

Take a moment to consider God’s awesome majesty, and thank Him that He loves you and wants an intimate relationship with you.

The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge. (Proverbs 18:15)

He who heeds the word prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. (Proverbs 16:20)

Lord, I thank You that You know me, and I pray that I would never be ashamed of my relationship with Jesus Christ. I thank You for being my help and my shield. I ask that I would be prudent enough to acquire knowledge and to heed Your words.
