If the idea of praying through Scripture still seems new to you, here is a wonderful and a difficult passage. It does not mention enemies or spiritual need. It’s glorious, certainly, but how to PRAY these words for someone you love? (Psalm 19:1-6)
Here is an example. Today I’m praying for ______________________.
The heavens declare Your glory, O God, and my friend needs to see and to know;
the skies proclaim the work of Your hands, and You can be discovered in a sunrise.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
Let the heavens speak to this one whom I love, assuring them of Your sovereignty and Your love.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
I am deeply thankful, Lord, that without words and through nature and natural things, You can reveal Yourself… please reveal Yourself to _______________.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
As the sun comes up this day, let _________ consider, “Who is God to me? Can He help me? Will He?”
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
As nothing is deprived of the warmth of the sun, not even in dead of winter, You will not deprive _______________ of the grace needed to come to faith in Your Son. As we could not last a moment without the sun in the heavens, we cannot believe without Your grace and truth. Help my friend, my loved one, Lord God!
