EP. 18 - a prayer for wisdom
What a privilege to have access to the living and active Word of God. What would happen if we prayed Scripture instead of filling every moment in prayer with our own words?
Here's a simple and quick prayer to get you started:
- Praise God for Scripture
- Share with the Lord any strongholds around it
- Ask the Lord to point you to a passage to pray
- Ask the Lord for revelation if you’ve taken anything out of context.
