Day 5

The God Who Keeps His Promises

from the reading plan

2 Chronicles 6:12-42, 2 Chronicles 7:1-22, Ephesians 1:20-23

Though Scripture contains many written prayers, like those found in the book of Psalms, and many teachings on how to pray, like the parables and sermons in Jesus’s ministry, this reading plan focuses on the prayers offered to God in the narratives of Scripture. Each day we’ll read a narrative that includes a prayer from an individual or group. Their prayers vary in length, type, posture, purpose, and God’s response. The secondary passages explore how the rest of Scripture speaks to the themes demonstrated in the main reading. 

While each account is different, every prayer recorded in Scripture teaches us about the unchanging God who invites us to speak to and hear from Him. These prayers model for us what it can look like to be in conversation with God. As you read, notice the posture and emotions present each day. 

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at He Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading Prayers in Scripture together, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read in the comments. 

The prayers this week have pointed us toward the God who listens, is compassionate, guides, remembers, and keeps His promises. Look back at the prayer requests of Hes around the world from Day 1. Let what you’ve learned about God shape your prayers for those who are reading alongside you.

    Good morning. There is power in prayer and it can often times be easier for others to pray for someone if that person has difficulty in prayer. I pray for all of us going through this journey. What a great He Reads Truth Plan! This is so needed and is a great guide for all of us to learn from each other! Praise God! I am anxious for what next week’ readings bring.

    My lovely bride has reminded me in recent days of the need to pray with boldness, something I fear because I expect Him to say “NO”! But what if He said “Yes, Yes, a Thousand Times, Yes!” My prayer for us is that we are brave enough to go to the edge and pray with boldness!

  4. Stephen says:

    Praying with boldness and intention can be difficult. Often I find myself repeating the same thing over and over again.

    I am thankful to know God hears all my prayers but realize I severely lack in my prayer life and pray the spirit fills me up to be more bold in my praying.

    @Reynold Kremer – every once and a while the HRT study does not have a daily devotional but instead has questions to prompt our own reflection and discussion on the Scriptures.
