Day 15

The God Who Forgives

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

Luke 23:32-43, Mark 15:33-36, Luke 23:46, Isaiah 50:7-10, Acts 7:54-60

BY She Reads Truth

Though Scripture contains many written prayers, like those found in the book of Psalms, and many teachings on how to pray, like the parables and sermons in Jesus’s ministry, this reading plan focuses on the prayers offered to God in the narratives of Scripture. Each day we’ll read a narrative that includes a prayer from an individual or group. Their prayers vary in length, type, posture, purpose, and God’s response. The secondary passages explore how the rest of Scripture speaks to the themes demonstrated in the main reading. 

While each account is different, every prayer recorded in Scripture teaches us about the unchanging God who invites us to speak to and hear from Him. These prayers model for us what it can look like to be in conversation with God. As you read, notice the posture and emotions present each day. 

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading Prayers in Scripture together, 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 in the comments.

This Monday, we’ll start the week thanking God for His forgiveness. Share with others in the global community why you’re thankful for a God who forgives.

    Praise God for His grace, mercy and forgiveness! Becoming a mom has made me extremely thankful for His forgiveness! I’ve come to the end of myself so often and I’ve seen so many parts of myself thst I do not like! Praise God that he is refining me and praise Him that one day i will be fully redeemed!

    I’m thankful for God’s forgiveness because now I do not have to live bound by the expectation of perfection. I know nothing I can do will ever make God love me any less, and that his forgiveness is offered continually – what a display of his grace! Romans 6:1-14

    Ok thanks God forgives and brought me out from the depths. He could have left me there, but his plans are always higher and greater. Thank you Lord.

    I’m thankful for his power of forgiveness- it’s given to me and I couldn’t earn it. His desires for me are good.
