Praying the Bible ~ Hebrews 6:9-12

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: Hebrews 6:9-12
Even though we are speaking this way, dearly loved friends, in your case we are confident of things that are better and that pertain to salvation. For God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you demonstrated for his name by serving the saints–and by continuing to serve them. Now we desire each of you to demonstrate the same diligence for the full assurance of your hope until the end, so that you won’t become lazy but will be imitators of those who inherit the promises through faith and perseverance.  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, sometimes days feel short; they fly by in a blink. Other times days feel long, like they will last forever. We live in this paradox where life is a vapor but also a long journey. Lord, in that journey, help us to walk obedient and faithful. Where we have served, stir our hearts to serve still. Where we have loved, empower us to love more. Help us not to become lazy and bored in our faith but to enjoy your mercies afresh each day. Set our eyes on those faithful saints who long endured, those who walked a faithful path to the end. May their lives encourage us to do the same. Amen.
