I am enjoying looking into some of these resources. My “must read” list is growing! I might need to take a speed reading course (lol). I found an online version of the Valley of Vision and I am enjoying praying through these prayers.
I would be curious of thoughts on using the Bible as a prayer guide. I’ve gone through several of the books and changed the wording so that it is a prayer. An example from the book of Hebrews: May we pay close attention to what we have heard; to Your gospel so that we don’t drift away from it. Romans: Today use me to make known and to have no doubt that it is the gospel (not the government, not people, not…) that is Your salvation to everyone who believes, and if I am fearful or intimidated, empower me with Your love and Your spirit so that I am not ashamed of it. Enable me to be righteous and to live by faith.
I add some of my own heartfelt words to the scripture that I am reading based on what is going on at that time, but consciously try to avoid changing the meaning. One bonus I am finding is that as I pray through these books, I’m beginning to know which book to go to for a particular subject and the “flavor” of each book.
