Day 2

Are you ever unsure about what you should pray? Do you prayers become dull or repetitive? Do you ever feel as if you’re praying incorrectly?

Our Scripture engagement practice for today is a way to strengthen your prayer life by praying Scripture.

The Psalms are a great place to start this practice. We can echo those prayers word-for-word to God easily because of the wide-range of emotions and situations found within the Psalter.

But how would you pray a passage of Scripture that doesn’t include a specific prayer?

In today’s video, Phil Collins guides you through a familiar story in Jesus’ ministry – turning water into wine in John 2 – but in a fresh and engaging way.

When I’m driving to visit my wife in hospital, I pray. Sometimes sing.
An opportunity to get a bit closes to God.
Thank you for the devotion.

This was a helpful way to slow down and really internalize and chew the passage. Thank you. I had tried to sing passages of the Bible but the sound of God cringing…well you know.

This was very enlightening to me in that I learned a couple things that I hadn’t thought about in reading this scripture before & I also learned a lot more about praying scripture & how to do that when it is not an actual prayer or psalm.

Reading scripture and praying about it specifically is a beautiful way to communicate with God. Thank you for this lesson. It will be an added blessing when studying scripture.

It is a blessing to be able to strengthen my prays by praying scripture this way. I was custom to praying mostly the scriptures of the Book of Psalm but Day 2 has showed me that praying scripture is not limited. Thank you for, once again, showing me another out look.

This time with my Lord strengthened me and encouraged me to pray and expect great things from God and attempt great things for God. What are the jars God wants me to fill so he can turn water into wine? Am I excited to participate with him in glorifying his great name?

GOD has convicted me of my slackness, GOD is not slack as men count slackness; I am. Grant me the strength to over come this weakness.

This has to be one of the most powerful ways of prayer. Allowing myself to be guided by the Word while at the same time making sure that the Word stays in my mind and heart. There’s no forgetting the scriptures after praying them.
