Day 8

The God Who Works in All Circumstances

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

Matthew 26:17-46, Luke 22:39-53, Proverbs 3:5-6, Hebrews 5:7-8

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. 

The prayers this week have pointed us toward the God who listens, is compassionate, guides, remembers, and keeps His promises. Look back at the prayer requests of Shes around the world from Day 1. Let what you’ve learned about God shape your prayers for those who are reading alongside you.

    God is the greatest listener. He hears everything whether you say it or not. He understands your heart and hears your thoughts. He knows what you are asking without you having to speak.

    He uses all things for good. He has a great plan ahead we must just trust in Him.

    Praying scriptures can make praying more accessible and easier
