This is nothing new, Churches have used Scriptures for centuries as a means to pray. It has fallen away in many churches because it is “not personal” and said without a heartfelt rendering. But for many years I have called upon the Word of God and His Faithfulness to open my heart so that I can say what I need to say. Scripture Prayer is the beginning of understanding, praise and openness in talking with God. I will add Scriptures frequently for your use when you are called to pray and don’t know where to start. Not all scriptures are direct quotes, some will be rephrased to be used as prayer.
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing Love. Because of your great compassion , blot out the stain of my sins. Psalm 51:1
My house stands firm with God: He has made an everlasting covenant with me,
all is in order, well assured; does He not bring to flower all that saves me, all I desire?
2 Sam. 23:5.
Indeed You (LORD), love the people; all the holy ones are in Your Hands.
They follow in Your steps and accept your instruction. Deut. 33:3
Let those who are wise understand these thing, let those who are discerning listen carefully; The paths of (You) Lord are true and right, and the righteous people live by walking in them….
To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity.
To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile
You rescue those who are humble, but your eyes are on the proud to humiliate them.
O LORD, you are light; yes LORD you light up my darkness.
2 Sam 22:26-29
He (God) made the earth by his power, and he preserves it by his wisdom.
He stretched out the heavens by his understanding…
But the God of Israel is no idol!
He is the Creator of everything that exists, including his people, his own special possession.
The LORD Almighty is his name. Jeremiah 51:15,19
Let me be humble under Your Might Hand, oh God, May You exalt me at the proper time. I cast all my anxiety upon You, because You care for me. 1 Peter 5:6-7
Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised; and His Greatness is unsearchable. Psalm 145:3
Lord there is no God besides you, who acts in behalf of those who wait for You. You meet the one who rejoices in doing righteousness, who remembers You in Your ways. Isaiah 64:4,5
Behold the LORD’S hand is not so short that it cannot save; Nether is His ear so dull that it cannot hear. Isaiah 59:1
It is good to give thanks to the LORD, and to sing praises to Thy Name. O Most High; to declare Thy Lovingkindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness by night. Psalm 92:1-2
