Praying the Scriptures

To pray the scriptures, choose a verse from the Bible and then pray it over yourself or someone else:

Put people in _____ life who will gently instruct him.
Grant him repentance leading to knowledge of the truth.
Cause him to come to his senses and
escape from the trap of the devil who has taken him captive to do his will.

Open _____ eyes and turn him from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan to God, so that he may receive forgiveness of sins
and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Christ.

Thank you for loving our family so much that you gave your only Son,
that when we believe in Him we will not perish but have eternal life.

I pray that we would continue to live in Christ, rooted and built up in Him,
strengthened in the faith as we were taught and overflowing with thankfulness.

Count ______ as one of your people and be his God.
Give him a singleness of heart and action so that
he will always fear you for his own good and for the good of his children.
Make an everlasting covenant with him.
Never stop doing good to him
and inspire him to fear you so that he will never turn away from you.

Put a new spirit in us, Lord. Remove our hearts of stone.
Cause us to follow your decrees and keep your laws.
Let us know that we belong to you and that you are our God.

I pray that our home will be rooted and established in love,
and that we may have power together with all the saints to grasp
how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know
this love that surpasses all understanding, that we may be filled to the
measure of all the fullness of God.
