A lifetime and three years in the making, the full Pray the Scriptures Bible is available now. I trust that it will open your mind, heart, and words to the Giver and Lord of Life.
Most people pray. Many of us struggle. We wonder what to say to God and how to say it. We worry if we will get what we ask for or if we can speak honest questions.
The Pray the Scriptures Bible shows that all of God's Word teaches us to pray. It's a unique experiential Bible. Alongside the full text of the highly readable and reliable God's Word translation, Pray the Scriptures Bible offers a stream of prayers inspired by Scripture. It's an avenue of conversation with the God who speaks to us through his Word. It's a response to Scripture that flows from living, pastoring, and teaching, as well as authoring more than 50 books for adults and youth.
Don't expect prayers too lofty for your real life. My goal was to stay close to the text and find words and themes that fit in everyone's mouth. You can pray these prayers for yourself. You can pray them for others. And you can pray them with others. I hope these prayers help you find your own voice with God.
Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott say, “For two decades Kevin Johnson’s writings have led students and adults deeper into the heart of God. Now he shows us how to use Scripture as the ultimate prayer book. We love it. This is powerful spiritual inspiration.”
