Hearers of the Word

So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.

Lord, inspire me to read your Scriptures
and to meditate upon them day and night.
I beg you to give me real understanding of what I read,
that I in turn may put its precepts into practice.
Yet, I know that understanding and good intentions are worthless,
unless rooted in your graceful love.
So I ask that the words of Scripture may also be not just signs on a page.
but channels of grace into my heart. Amen.

(Origen, AD c.184-c.254)
