Day 4

The God Who Remembers

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

1 Samuel 1:1-28, 1 Samuel 2:1-11, Isaiah 49:14-16, Hebrews 6:10

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. 

How does the prayer in today’s reading match or not match your expectations of what prayer can be?

    As I’m starting my journey back into the lords path this is extremely helpful in my faith to grow

    This scripture holds a dear place in my heart. I’ve walked the path of infertility and prayed and thought Lord didn’t care at times. I read this scripture a long time ago and was full of great joy to be reminded that the Lord never forgets and is always listening. It’s always his timing and he’s working things out for our good. Eventually I was granted my son through the gift of adoption, and it’s always a reminder that he doesn’t forget us, but cares for us and is on his time table, not ours!

    I want to feel freely able to be as honest, vulnerable & raw as Hannah before the Lord…she was so honest in the midst of her suffering & pain & loneliness

    He will not forget..He has engraved us on the palms of His hands. We are His.

    I want to be like Hannah after God answers my prayer, taking a long amount of time to praise and thank Him for His answer.
