Praying the Bible ~ Acts 2:47

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: Acts 2:47
“Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, you are the God who delights in saving people. You take joy in rescuing us from our rebellion against you. Father, we ask that you would move through our community with your Spirit and your Word. May the hearts of many, young and old, hear the Gospel, trust in Jesus, and rejoice in salvation. May we be the voices crying out into our community with the message of hope and life through Jesus. Then bring, each day, another into your family by faith. Amen.
