Praying the Bible ~ Psalm 119:145-148

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Psalm 119:145-148
I call with all my heart; answer me, Lord. I will obey your statutes. I call to you; save me, and I will keep your decrees. I rise before dawn and cry out for help. I put my hope in your word. I am awake through each watch of the night to meditate on your promise. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, thank you for hearing my prayers. Thank you that through Christ, all your promises are a “yes and amen.” Even when I don’t know the things I should pray for, even when I stumble through my words, you are the loving Father who listens. Father, you have given me Jesus. You have filled me with your Spirit. You have saved me from my sins. May I obey you in all that I do. May I delight in honoring you by keeping your word. Your word is my hope, because by it you have shown me Jesus and promised a glorious eternity. Day and night, whenever I am awake, help your word to be firmly planted in my heart and mind. Amen.
