Praying the Prayers of the Bible
by James Banks
“Come and talk with me.”—Psalm 27: 8
David cried out to the Lord for help when he was fearful, discouraged, even disobedient. The Israelites praised and thanked God for delivering them from the Egyptian army. The prophet Habakkuk continued to approach the Lord with a spirit of hope and joy—even though he knew his people would soon face difficult times. In the lives of many people throughout the Bible we find examples of practical and relevant conversations with the One who says, “Come and talk with me.”
In Praying the Prayers of the Bible, you’ll find a collection of Scriptural prayers for everyday living, intimate talks with God that will engage your spirit. Taken straight from the Word, these topically-arranged petitions help you tell the Lord how much you appreciate Him, ask Him for wisdom and guidance, and so much more.
Each section begins with a meditation and ends with “prayer starters” to guide you as you spend personal time with the Lord. This insightful book also includes suggestions on when to pray these prayers and an index of references to both the Old and New Testament Scriptures.
Discover how you can grow deeper in your faith, renew your strength, and experience fresh blessings. Respond to God’s invitation to come into His presence, and experience His amazing power to do more than you could ever ask or imagine.
