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: 1 Thessalonians 2:13
This is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message but as it truly is, the word of God, which also works effectively in you who believe. (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, thank you for your word. It is powerful and active. You use it to change our hearts and minds. You use it to show us our great need for Jesus and the greater hope we have in him. Father, thank you for using your word in our hearts to bring us to life and faith. We pray for those we know. We ask that you would open their hearts to your word as well. As we seek ways to share it and show them your love, may you use your word effectively in their hearts to bring them to Jesus. Amen.
