    Lord God, I pray that lead me to strength in spreading your word and your love with those around me. I pray that my family finds their faith in You and I pray for Alyson who I know needs You like I did when I found your promise and steadfast love. I pray for Cameron to follow You so that I may follow him as he leads me to You. I pray for all of my loved ones to join me in salvation. I pray that all my loved ones be fulfilled with Your steadfast love. Lord God I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

  12. Meghan Fox says:

    Thank you Kelly. I will be praying for your daughter as well. I’m so tha fool that God heard all of our prayers and knows what we need even when we don’t.

  13. Jenna says:

    Hannah Storay praying for your father-in-law. Praying he makes a speedy and full recovery. Praying that he receives good care. Praying that your family senses God’s presence and peace until you are all together again.

  14. Victoria E says:

    Amen Angie Mills! I have a similar problem- I start and end my day in prayer but the middle usually goes without unless I find myself up against a task I know I cannot do on my own. Praying for the requests here. Martha Hix and Traci Gendron, praying for you in the upcoming holidays without your husband and son respectively

  15. Hannah Storay says:

    Praying for all of you ladies. ❤️ I ask for prayers as well, and prayers for my family. My father in law is a truck driver and flipped his 18 wheeler 2800 miles from home. Literally on the other side of the country. He is ok with minimal issues other than a concussion causing memory issues which are slowly resolving.

  16. Churchmouse says:

    Basking with joy for the faithfulness and compassion of all those who gather here and lift up every need in prayer. We are not alone. We have Jesus. We have powerful intercessors. Regardless how dark the night, these prayer warriors are bright beacons of His Light. The devil has no chance when Christians are on their knees.

  17. Victoria L says:

  20. Mari says:

    Happy Saturday sweet SRT sisters! This morning I instead of quickly go through the short GRACE DAY verse, to intentionally pray. Thank you again Churchmouse for the reminder of the acronym of ACTS which was so helpful this morning to take time to “PRAY” and pray for all of you here as well. Speaking of praying, if you could also please pray for me. I have a cough that kept me up for a few hours but still managed to get some rest. Tested negative for covid just now. Also Saturdays are my long run days but I cancelled with my running partner because my right left two small toes are hurting. Not sure what I did. Needles to say I’m bummed to miss out on running but also not feeling 100%. I have LOTS to do today that includes going back to dress shopping with my daughter for her first Winter Formal dance.

  21. Kelly Andresen says:

    Joining you in prayer for your daughter – this is the same prayer I have for mine. I

  22. MARTHA HIX says:

    @searching.. thank you for including me in your prayers. You have been a blessing to me as you remember prayers requested. This is the 2nd Thanksgiving after my husband’s death and I will be joining my son and daughter and her family for 6 days in Breckenridge, Colorado… we’re from Texas. We will again honor my husband’s tradition of smoking a turkey… which they discovered last year he made look easier than ever imagined! Thank you for your continued prayers as we walk through the loss and grief of missing his physical presence even as we know he is face to face now with Jesus. ❤️

  23. Sarah Ritchie says:

    Beautiful Jennifer.

  24. Meghan Fox says:

    I’m a long time SRT reader but don’t post often. I’m asking for prayer for my daughter. Please pray for a soft heart, for all traces of stubbornness and selfishness to flee. Also pray for guidance for me, for the Holy Spirit to lead me in all things and to quiet myself so I can hear His voice.

  25. Jennifer Loves Jesus says:

    “All who stand for good must wage a constant battle with the forces of evil” (OSB notes on Eph. 6:10-17). Spiritual warfare begins with the heart. “Guard your heart with all care, for it is the spring of your life.” (Prov. 4:23 LXX). Our heart is the truest and deepest reality of who we are. It is in my heart that I commune with God in prayer, and here I am “praying always… in the Spirit” (Eph 6:18). My heart is the sacred dwelling place of God, and this is a mysterious truth. It is also a testing ground of my faith. I receive Living Water to soothe the cracked or dry places where my faith withers. I receive peace from Jesus to restore wholeness in my relationship with God. “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.” (John 17:27). “Do not let” means I have a choice to be unafraid. I access strength and power from God through prayer. Always. I can put on the “whole armor of God” (Eph 6:11), and guard my heart, so that I am “strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” (v. 10). I pray that my heart is a continual reflection of God and His will for my life, and a “holy ground of fiery revelation” (Illumined in the Spirit, pg. 64). Lord, have mercy. Make it so. Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Until… Maranatha.

  26. Rhonda J. says:

    “with my life laid down, I surrender now, I give you everything…” Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me. Oh heavingly Father, keep chasing after me and bringing me closer to you, laying down my life to give you everything. I surrender, I surrender.

    My heart hurts a little this morning after our ministry in the park last night for the homeless, the downtrodden, the broken. The weight was heavy. I still feel “new” and inexperienced sometimes, especially when they face so many obstacles. Sometimes I don’t know what or how to pray for them, the words don’t come easy to me. But I know just listening and letting them be seen and heard is also at least something to them and I do my best to encourage them. God has grown me so much from just earlier this year when I NEVER felt comfortable praying out loud!! For our groups or for individuals! God is good, he gives us what we need, when we need it!! Praise God, the fellowship with him is so amazing, and our walk will always grow when we put our effort into it as well.

    Have a good wkd She’s! Praying for you @Traci, for your strength and comfort. Keep being such a strong testimony for those here and in your life. And for all those others in the midst of loss. I’m sure my mom never knew that she was such a testimony to me as I saw her read her bible each morning on the few occasions that we were there to visit, she was just doing her normal routine. But after she passed, I knew there was something special in this seemingly small act to God, and she exuded many fruits of the Spirit and much wisdom. And that’s when I started being in the Word daily in 2014. Nothing will grow you like being in the Word every morning! I am so grateful to SRT for making that such an easy task, and for these studies that continue to edify me! Sorry for another tangent!!

  27. AZ Walker says:

    Praying for Jorinda Van Staden and wanted to share that Lysa Terkeurst wrote a book called Good Boundaries and Goodbyes. She also was on Focus on the Family 2 days last week if you can find the podcasts to listen.
    May be helpful! Praying for peace for all.

  28. Sue Hollar says:

    So much healing to be done! My heart grieves for a lost soul (my daughter) and for our marriage! I need this study and pray I get answers

  29. Angie Mills says:

    Lord God, You call us to pray at all times in the Spirit every prayer and request. I confess that I do not. I pray to You in the morning, but then I so often go throughout the day forgetting to cry out to You in my busyness. Continue to teach me to be fully dependent upon You, Lord. As I go throughout the day, help me learn to keep my heart and my mind fixed on You. Teach me to draw closer to You each day. Lord, help me to stay alert with all perseverance. Open my spiritual eyes to see how the enemy is attacking me with his lies. Renew my mind so that I understand how my own flesh is waging war with Your Spirit who dwells within me. Lord, grow my love for my fellow believers, Your people. Help me to intercede for them. May Your Spirit give me wisdom to know how best to pray for others. May my prayers be for Your honor and glory alone. May You use my prayers to help advance Your kingdom. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.

    THEBESTISYETTOCOME – praying for the heart of your foster baby’s mama. May the Lord bring her to Himself so that she is transformed and can be the mama she was designed to be. May the Lord bring you peace as you poor love and care into your foster baby so that s/he has a stong foundation to flurish in life

  32. searching says:

    SUSAN LINCKS – for this study, the last section of the commentary is different each day to guide us in reading the Scriptures and seeing how our prayer life can be guided, enhanced, deepened, looking at many types of prayer and what we can learn and apply to ourselves. Reflective rather than devo guided. When I first started studying through the SRT devotions several years ago, I sort of resented these occasional reflective studies as they required more from me (a bit lazy & not my smartest line of thinking). The longer I’ve been doing these studies, I have come to realize these reflective studies are a great reset button for me to make sure I’m on track and really studying God’s word.

    DOROTHY – how are you doing this week after the move? praying for you and Carol.

    ADRIANNE RICHARDSON – love what you said about praying, maybe not getting what we ask for but getting what we didn’t realize we needed

    GRAMSIESUE & LYNNE FROM AL – praying for each of you and your husbands

    also praying for:
    ROBYN PANKOK – marriage and husband
    SUE HOLLAR – daughter
    RAVANNE HARRIS – comfort in your grief over loss of your son
    ASHLEIGH – infertility
    RHONDA J – your niece and your grandchildren
    AMANDA NOBLE – housing and other needs
    KIM – your marriage and husband
    WENDY DE LA ROSA – brothers
    JULIA GIBSON – job search

    GAYLE R – praising the Lord for answers to prayer!

    MARTHA HIX – thinking about you

  33. DB says:

    Lord God we thank you for this study on prayer. For the reminder of the importance and power of prayer. I lift up all the She’s who are doing this study Lord. I pray that they would grow in deeper relationship with you and that they would sense your peace in the midst of the chaos of this world and their own struggles. Lord thank you for the women of She Reads Truth who started this ministry and those who have been a part of the writing team. May they be blessed this week. Amen
