How to Use the Scriptures in Prayer

“For me, it is absolutely essential that my prayers be guided by, saturated, and sustained and controlled by the Word of God.” -John Piper

This section of the blog will provide a new Scriptural verse each week to help you receive direction from God and build confidence in the power of His Word so that you may pray with the knowledge of what the Scriptures contain.

Reading each verse and internalizing it for a week will help you to become acquainted with it so that you can recall it in a time of need. The purpose of the pauses and “thank yous” we have inserted into the verses is to help you develop an attitude of thanksgiving and praise to God for what He expresses through His Word.

For more insight on each verse, look it up in the Bible and read the verses that come before and after it.
