• “Men think lightly of sin; not only sinners, but the saints do not view it in its proper light. Sin is not a light thing in the sight of God. The Church of God is asleep.” – Mary Winslow

Praying the Bible by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/19/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We know that we’re supposed to pray according to the will of God. And there’s one sure way that we can do that. When we pray the Word of God back to Him, we know that we’re praying according to His will.

Second Samuel 7 gives us one of King David’s prayers. All he does is ask God to keep the word that came to him through the prophet Nathan. David says to God, “Keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house. Do as you promised, so that your name will be great forever.”

God had already promised that one of David’s descendants would continue to sit on the throne. David was just repeating in prayer what had already been promised.

We can do the same thing by praying the Bible back to God. If you ever feel like you don’t know God’s will and don’t know what to pray, try opening the Bible and asking God to do the things He’s already promised.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
