Praying the Bible ~ Habakkuk 2:14

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: Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord’s glory, as the water covers the sea.  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, this time of year we think often about you sending your Son. That baby in the manger all those years ago was a hint of your glory breaking into the darkness of the world. What began in the manger, you spread through your church as we exalt Jesus. And the day is coming where Jesus will return and on that day, your glory will be known by all, filling the whole earth just like water in the sea. Father, we pray for that day to come quickly. We ask that your glory would chase away all darkness. But as we wait, help us remain faithful to show the glory of your love and grace to all around us. Amen.
