Praying the Scriptures

Affiliate disclosure

How would you feel if the President of the United States invited you to meet with him every morning? To talk with him and share your needs with him, asking for his advice and provision?

I recently posed this question to my kids over breakfast. They paused before answering, absorbing the enormity of this almost inconceivable scenario.

The novelty of the idea eventually wore off, and though the five-year-old remained unimpressed, the older two shared that a daily meeting with the President would make them feel super important, taking priority over everything else on their schedules.

How much greater is the privilege of prayer!

To be allowed – no, more than allowed – to be invited into the throne room of God, the very Creator of the universe. Summoned to fellowship with Him. Beckoned to spend time with Him.

Prayer is a gift and an honor. Praying the Scriptures is particularly powerful, as it acknowledges the importance of God’s Word and affirms its authority. Even more, it’s a way to let God know that what He says matters to you. For real.

Many of you joined me for the Prayers for All Seasons series, during which we delved into the nitty-gritty of life’s circumstances, covering them in prayer using relevant Scriptures. Since that time, I’ve received multiple requests for the prayers to be recorded in a central location for easy access. I’m pleased to let you know that you can find each topic below, including a few others I’ve written over the past couple of years.

May the Word of God be living and powerful, in our living and in our praying!

    Wow, Jennifer, Dianne is right! You do have a great resource here. I wrote just last Tuesday on praying the scriptures, both benefits and how to, but you have a great compilation here! Pinning this!

    This post is such an encouragement on prayer. We can never pray too much for any one thing! I know someone who says we are never to pray more than once for something as that would tell God that we don’t trust Him. However, that is unbiblical. We are told to pray unceasingly!

    Thank you for visiting me, Jennifer.
