Dear Lord,

As the work day draws to a close for most, we give thanks for all of those who, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, had a hand in the creation of the Bible.  The scribes, evangelists, scholars, rabbis, pastors, priests and lay people.  All of those who, over the centuries, labored so that we might open a book and read “In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth . . . ”  This holy word has come so far.   Help us go that final distance and pick it up.  Amen.

 20 First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation,  21 because no prophecy ever came by human will, but men and women moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.     —  2 Peter 1:20-21
