Day 2

The God Who Is Compassionate

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan


Nehemiah 1:1-11, Nehemiah 2:1-8, Isaiah 49:13, 1 Peter 5:6-7

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. 


How does knowing that God is compassionate impact how you extend grace through prayer?

    Lord help me to leave the judgement to you and be compassionate to others as you have been compassionate to me.

    Knowing that God is compassionate brings me a level of peace. It reassures me that I can lay anything,all of my concerns as well as my desires, at his feet. It reassures me that he hears me and that he is concerned about the things that concerns me!
    Thank you, God, for being a loving and compassionate God!

  3. Chloe Plunk says:

    He is such a forgiving God. It doesn’t matter the sins you have made, He is there for us because we are His children. He attaches no strings to His love for us. We will hurt Him again and again and He will be there with open arms. He will listen and answer our prayers no matter our past.

    God has been teaching me that when I come to Him, He just wants me. I don’t have to strive and bring anything with me. He is so compassionate that He sees my faults yet still loves me. He doesn’t require perfection just a humble heart and a desire to know Him.
