Praying the Bible ~ John 12:20-22

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: John 12:20-22
Now some Greeks were among those who went up to worship at the festival. So they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and requested of him, “Sir, we want to see Jesus.” Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, we live in a world filled with people who need to meet Jesus. Where they come to us, may we be faithful to show them Jesus through our acts of love and tell them of Jesus through the gospel story. Where they don’t come to us, may we be faithful to go to them with acts of love and the gospel story. Give us hearts for your mission. Cause us to see the great need around us. Make us kind, compassionate, and loving. Lead us to show others Jesus. Amen.
