Do you ever have a hard time finding the words to pray? I love praying Scripture. I'm reading through the One Year Bible again this year. Did it several years ago and it was such a blessing. In the OYB you read from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs every day. Takes about 15-20 minutes. And at the end of the year...you have read through the Bible.
Here is a sample of how I use the Scripture to pray.
Taken from Psalm 19.
Dear Lord, Your law is perfect, it revives my soul. Your degrees are trustworthy, making me wise. You commandments are right, bringing joy to my heart.
Your commands are clear, giving me insight to life. How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from hidden faults.
Oh Lord, keep me from deliberate sins. Don't let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin.
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. I love you Amen.
Thanks again for all your visits and comments. I try to respond to all your comments, so I hope you are checking back when you have time. Have a great weekend.
