How to Pray Through Scripture

 

Below are a few ideas of how to pray through Scripture.

Here's an example:

Verse: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Prayer: Father, it says in your word for me to cast all my anxiety on you because you care for me. Thank you for loving me so much, God. You are the only one who cares about all the details of my life. Your love is so rich. You are compassionate and kind. You are true love! Please help me to trust you when I become anxious. In these moments, remind me of your faithfulness. Help me to trust you as I give my anxieties over to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
