Man shall not live by bread alone

What a wonderful explanation of pray-reading the Word! Many times through the years I've heard pray-reading explained and discussed and have practiced it in meetings and alone, but the simple and sweet yet deeply impressive power and clarity of this hymn has affected me very much.

Oh, Lord Jesus, save me from mishandling Your precious Word. May it not remain in my mind as only knowledge burdensome, but rather may my spirit act to take Thy Word and contact Thee, truly feeding and touching Thyself most inwardly. Then will my spirit be nourished as thus upon Thyself I feed.
