Praying the Bible ~ 1 Timothy 4:14

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: 1 Timothy 4:14
Don’t neglect the gift that is in you… (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, we thank you that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We thank you even more that in Jesus, we are fearfully and wonderfully remade. In giving us your Spirit, you have given us one of the greatest gifts imaginable–Christ in us, our hope of glory. And in giving us your Spirit, you have given us various gifts and abilities and called us to love and serve others well. May we not neglect either gift. Through your Spirit himself, may we fellowship with and worship you each day. Then through the gifts of your Spirit, may we serve others in love and call them to your grace in Jesus. Amen.
