Synopsis

This e-Book contains eighty-four personalized prayers based on scriptural verses that will empower and inspire you in your devotionals as the Holy Spirit works in you. Written in the first person singular pronoun, these prayers can serve as a catalyst for developing or strengthening your relationship with God of the Ages.

As you pray the prayers, you will note that inherent in each prayer is the keen awareness of our own need to be changed by God and to be endued with His power to do His divine will. His Holy Writ provides the spiritual direction for each prayer, that is, each prayer is in response to the selected scriptural verses.

When we pray, spiritually influenced by the Scriptures, we acknowledge the weakness and sins that it put before us, and we celebrate in praise and thanksgiving as we glorify Him for being our God through Jesus Christ. Our prayers bring us into agreement with God and His power is released to quiet the turbulent soul.

Holy Writ (Bible, Scripture) inspired praying is not identical with Scripture praying. Scripture praying personalizes a biblical text. For example, 2 Corinthians 5:1 reads: “Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.” Scripture praying would personalize it thusly:

Lord, I know that if the earthly tent I live in is destroyed, I have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

Though similar, Scripture inspired prayers in the context in which I mean it, are prayers inspired by the verse or passage through the work of the Holy Spirit in you. So an inspired prayer from this same verse might be:

O God, Whose days are without end and whose mercies cannot be numbered,

Keep me deeply aware of the shortness and uncertainty of human life. Grant that Your Holy Spirit lead me in holiness and righteousness and that when I shall have served my allotted time, I be gathered with all the saints of the ages before Your throne at last. This I ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Notice the difference?

Inspired Scripture praying is responding to God in the moment as you are meditating on His Word and being urged by the Holy Spirit to pray, in a contrite spirit, your soul deepest needs in reaction to the Word. It also includes responding to God in praise of who He is as God and what that means to you personally.
