Ways to pray – Idea #2

Use the Word of God

Another idea for a way to pray is to use words from the bible while you pray.

For example, you can use many of the Psalms as prayers. Look at the words of Psalm 139. There are so many parts of this Psalm that can connect to our daily lives.

Take some time to look at the Psalms, as well as other parts of the bible, and look for passages that you can read as a prayer.

What I like about this type of prayer style is that you are immersed in the bible, God’s Word, as you are praying. It also reminds me that even David, as a king, felt lost at times. King David, a “man after God’s own heart” suffered and worried in life. It can remind you that you are not the only one who has needed God desperately.

I’ll continue with idea #3 in my next post.
