Praying for understanding

An absolute gem from Calvin quoted in Doug Kelly's Systematic Theology Vol. 1 (p. 58):
When we come to hear the sermon or take up the Bible, we must not have the foolish arrogance of thinking that we shall easily understand everything we hear or read. But we must come with reverence, we must wait entirely upon God, knowing that we need to be taught by His Holy Spirit, and that without Him we cannot understand anything that is shown us in His Word.
