Day 17

The God Who Hears Our Confession

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

Daniel 9:1-23, Nehemiah 9:32-37, 1 John 1:5-10

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. 

Prior to today’s reading, have you ever considered how prayers, specifically confession, can be communal, or offered on behalf of a group or community? Share with the global community your experience with this type of prayer.

    if is a general thing so we pray using umbrella terms that might mean something different for everyone but we pray like that because we all need it and us as a community/ church need it

    We pray together as a church and confession is part of that but also general outcry for the suffering and marginalized or pleading for wisdom and understanding. It can be intimidating to pray together but it’s never been a bad experience. Always very uplifting. The Spirit is definitely on the move when we pray.
