In mid-June I flew to Toronto for an interview on “100 Huntley Street.” The purpose was to feature Peaceful Moments to Begin Your Day: Devotions for Busy Women and talk about spiritual lessons as they apply to everyday life. Moira Brown and I had a great time sharing lessons we’ve learned over time, some easier than others. We specifically discussed waiting on the Lord and learning to pray.
When we pray, it’s easy to fall into patterns such as “Lord, bless so-and-so and keep him safe. Amen.” While there’s nothing inherently wrong with a prayer like that, I believe we can pray more effectively when we go a step further and incorporate God’s word (being careful not to pull anything from its correct context).
When my kids were much younger, I was invited to attend a moms’ prayer group. That’s where I learned to pray Scripture, and doing so turned my prayer life upside down. Years later I developed a workshop called “Power-Packed Prayers” and a resource called “Praying Scripture Head to Toe.” Here’s the resource for your use. And here’s the interview with Moira Brown for your enjoyment.
If you have a moment, I’d love to hear what your favourite Scripture verse is and how you’ve incorporated it in your prayer life.
With love from Berlin,
