Praying the Bible ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

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: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, we praise you that you are the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. Many times we don’t understand the “why” of our trials as we face them. We are often blind to your work and purposes through them. Remind us, though, that you indeed have a purpose. Remind us, that if nothing else, when comfort comes we can in turn comfort others who experience something similar. We rejoice with those who rejoice and we weep with those who weep. But as we weep, we trust in you, the God who takes away all tears. Amen.
