from the This Is the Church reading plan

BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.

Christ calls His Church to herald the good news to each other, our communities, and the world. 

As you reflect on Scripture today, take time today to pray for those who don’t yet know Christ as Savior. Share how you are praying for them along with your response to the reading.

    Sharon Jersey Girl, thank you for the prayer prompt. It really spoke to my heart today.
    I pray for my family. My mom saw we went to church, but she doesn’t really understand salvation. She blew me away! She thinks if you’re “good”,…so needless to say, I’ve been praying, sharing and she’s got her stubborn on.
    I pray for my sister & her kids. She would tell you she is a Christian, but took her daughters to a concert to see 5SOS…every other word is the “Fbomb”. Really?! I was so upset! And 1 of those girls teaches in Sunday school. She/they may know who Jesus is, but I think their hearts are not His. My sister, Emily, has so much anger anymore, I hardly know her, so I pray… A LOT!

    Michelle Patire, your song is super awesome. I love the simplicity of the words so much. How talented.❤️ (Hoping this clapping emoji will show up)

    My 3 children are in their 20’s and do not know the Lord like I do. I pray every day they come back to His flock and remember Him from their childhood.

    Sharing the gospel used to be an awkward thing for me but now I learnt to share through actions. Every now and then the Lord will bring me people under my care because there is something for which they are drawn to me, and they show a thirst for something. I can’t pinpoint but there is a natural flow and pull. I pray and the Lord will usually say, they are for you, point them to Me. I would show them the joy of God in my life, the strength through hardships, and many many personal stories of victories through my storms and through my pain. And I find success that these stories captivated them, while not pressuring them, and they maintained relationships with me and got more curious. Also through random acts of kindness is also a way to minister, like shoveling snow for the neighbors after a snow storm (though my back would protest lol). I would also pray for my unsaved loved ones, my husband who knows Jesus just for the ticket to Heavens but resists to submit now on earth, for my young children who will learn from my ways to genuinely find Jesus in Me (praying they won’t choose my husband’s ways). I also pray for the leaders of Canada government, community leaders, church leaders whom God trusts and sees fit to give power, may they have access to godly wisdom, enlightened eyes of understanding, boldness to pass law and policy that are in line with the Word of God. Oh so many more. And I pray for SRT leaders, editors, IT professionals, and all the she’s that faithfully gather here without fail, in the time where I was most lonely, locked in, and wandering hoping if there was anyone out there feeling the same, yearning for God and His merciful solutions to find me, you were the light, just like the small fireflies with the glimmering glow in my dark moments. God was here, and you all were here. The remnants of the 7000. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Have I ever told you where would I be without you? Thank you to each and everyone of you with all my heart. Be blessed dear sisters.❤️

    Dear sweet She Michelle Patire. You penned & shared a beautiful – I repeat – beautiful song. “Simple” lyrics, you said. But “simple” lyrics do not lessen the “lesson”. Evidencing a heart endowed with gentleness, goodness & grace. What a gift! Keep singing & humming & writing & testifying & staying in the Word…on mission, on purpose, onward with the good news! Do it for yourself; do it for the world! Thanks be to God!

    This is a prayer I wrote next to Romans 1:16-17, “Lord, help me to live and show my FAITH to all those around me.” Then in my “Thrive Journaling Devotional Bible for Women” at the 1 Corinthian verses they had this pray, “Dear God, Give Your daughter the wisdom to know when to speak and when to wait on Your timely Words so Your Spirit can speak through her. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
    Sisters be blessed and remember God hears all our prayers.

    Praying for salvation for my husband. He has come a long way, from being pretty much an atheist to searching and being OK with going to church with me, watching the Chosen and other Christian movies, and even watching the Bible Project videos with me and talking about God. But every now and then he’ll say something like “even though [he’s] still not a believer” which breaks my heart… I have to keep persistently praying and remember where he’s come from, and that God has him on a path to bring him ever closer to His loving embrace. He certainly has the power to do so. Thank You Lord for helping me to build trust and patience in You through this. And to know that I have more of an influence than I sometimes realize… My walk and what I do matters. Please help me in Your strength to be a good example of a woman of faith for my husband, a Proverbs 31 woman… I cannot do it alone, but through You alone I can. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    (Thank you ladies for the ideas on praying for your food servers at restaurants and for praying for those you mistake as people you know… I will be using these practices also!)

    I’m praying for my daughter and 2 sons to return to Christ and walk with him for the rest of their lives. My one son and my daughter have spouses and they don’t know the Lord. My children were raised in the church and loved the Lord but when they left for college and got out on their own they walked away. I know God loves them and has a plan for them. My hope is in Jesus alone to call them back.
