Praying the Bible ~ Luke 1:38

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: Luke 1:38
“I am the Lord’s servant,” said Mary. “May it be done to me according to your word.” Then the angel left her. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, grant us a simple faith and humbleness. You are sovereign and you are good. Your plans for us, even if in the moment we don’t understand them, are for our good and joy, as well as the good and joy of others. Guide us with your word, Father. Show us the path to take today. When we see your plan unfold before us, may we say, “I am your servant, may it be done according to your word.” Amen.
