The prayer asks God to increase a love of the Bible in our hearts.
While many of us consider ourselves Christian, we don’t always have the same love and passion for the Bible. It’s possible that the Bible was never truly opened to us, or that we simply never made time to read it. We should always strive to increase your love of the Bible and this prayer of St. John Paul II is one way to achieve that.
Whatever the case may be, we could all use a little more love of sacred scripture, that divine “love letter” from God.
Here is a short prayer written by St. John Paul II that asks God to increase your love of the Bible.
Jesus, power and wisdom of God,
inspire in us a love for Sacred Scripture
in which is heard the voice of the Father which enlightens, inflames, nourishes and consoles.
Word of the living God, renew missionary zeal in the Church,
that all peoples may come to know you, true Son of God and true son of man,
the one mediator between man and God.
