Praying before scripture study, by Dallin H. Oaks

"It has always been my practice...that before I partake of food to nourish my body I bow my head and ask the Lord to bless that food.  I do the same before I partake of the spiritual food in the scriptures.  Before I begin to read the scriptures each day, I bow my head, and ask the Lord to bless me that I will have His Spirit to enlighten me on the meaning of what I am reading and to be with me throughout the day to help me make decisions, and to resist temptation.  I urge you to make that your practice."

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

("Welcome to Seminary", as quoted in Church News, week ending Sept. 10, 2011.)
