God Almighty, whose praise endures forever, I bow before You. In reverence of Your Holy name I commit to reading Your Word everyday so that I may grow in wisdom and knowledge of You. I do not want to walk as the foolish do, who walk in evil without understanding, and despise wisdom and instruction. I desire to walk in the knowledge of the Holy One, my Lord. You are my understanding, God. In understanding I will strive to obey Your commandments. I do not want to be a fool. To know You is to have wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
You are the Holy One in whose name I pray amen.
