In recent years, I have used my devotions to pray from the Bible, or I should say, to let the Bible guide my prayers; and, as our congregation knows, I have tried to make all my public praying utilize prayers and passages straight from the Bible.  Not only do I believe this is a better way to pray according to God’s will, but I believe it will help others learn to pray as well.

If you want to learn more about praying the scriptures, here is a link that has an article from Don Whitney’s book, Praying the Bible.  Dr. Whitney is a professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  There is also on that page a way to sign up for five video lessons on how to pray the Psalms.  I haven’t read the book yet, but the video lessons are short and insightful.  I think you will find them helpful.

Here is the article.    Here is the book.    Here is the video lesson sign up.
