Day 3

The God Who Guides

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

Acts 1:4-26, Deuteronomy 29:29, Ephesians 6:18

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. 

What is your relationship with prayer—has it been a struggle, something that comes naturally, or something you’ve learned?

    I come from a family of believers so I was taught early on the importance of prayer. I incorporate prayer into my daily life, however, with the hustle and bustle of life, I sometimes find myself rushing through my prayers and I have to stop and reel myself back in. Although I pray daily and most times throughout the day, I sometimes wonder if God is hearing my prayers. I try to not always go into prayer with a list of wants but also have a moment of thanks as well as worship.

    It’s great to know that I can pray anywhere , anytime in my heart. Sometimes I feel I don’t have the time to fully focus on prayer and it feels bad
