Pray the Scriptures: A 40-Day Prayer Experience is my first follow-up to Pray the Scriptures Bible. It energizes prayer by showing how to take familiar Bible passages and pray them back to God. Prayer-starter phrases help you apply the text to your own life and circumstances. Each day's entry includes an introductory thought, a section of Scripture to pray, and concluding questions for reflection, group discussion, and further prayer. This excerpt lets you try this simple approach to a deeper conversation with God. Available now from Bethany House Publishers.
