Day 1

The God Who Listens

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan


John 11:1-44, Proverbs 15:29, Matthew 7:7-11, 1 John 5:14-15

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. 


Today is the first day of the community study on prayers in Scripture! What are you looking forward to in this reading plan? Share how we can pray for one another in the comments below.

    Jesus, please help me understand how to pray for your will to be done, and not my will. I want to trust in you, that you are going to answer my prayers, according to your will. Even though the outcome may not be what I want, you know that it is what I need. Thank you Lord.
