There are lots of prayers before reading the Scriptures. I just did a quick Google search, and I found dozens, probably hundreds. Pick the one you like best.
I talk to God rather plainly, and I say something like, “Father, come to me in the Scriptures, and help me to know You better. Make me tender-hearted to what I learn here, so I might be more fully converted. Amen.” It varies from day to day.
Point is, do ask God to “open the eyes of your heart” and increase your receptivity to the Message. The fancy words don’t matter. The intention of the heart does.
