Day 19

The God Who Sends

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan


Isaiah 6:1-10, Matthew 28:18-20, John 20:21

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. 


In light of all that we have learned through this reading plan, what will you take with you in your prayer life moving forward?

    I have learned that I can go to God at anytime, in any place, in any emotional state and He will listen. He will answer in His own Godly time. He never leaves us.

  5. Andrea Anderson says:

    I will take scripture prayers with me moving forward. This has been such a wonderful study, I have loved reading it!!!

  6. Adrianne Richardson says:

    I’ll be looking for prayers in scripture that I hadn’t seen before, I’ll be considering who and how many I’m praying for, and I try harder to pray. To ask, seek and knock through prayer. To continue to hope and pursue our Lord through prayer. It’s a day late, but Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
