Day 12

The God Who Emboldens

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan


Acts 4:1-31, Proverbs 28:1, Ephesians 3:12-21


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 works in all circumstances, responds, brings justice, resurrects, and emboldens. Last week, we read prayers demonstrating that God listens, is compassionate, guides, remembers, and keeps His promises. How do these truths about God encourage you in prayer? Which has stood out to you most in this season?

One thought on "The God Who Emboldens"

    These readings help me to understand the power that I often ignore in prayer. God wants our love and affection. God listens and answers our prayers. We only need to have faith and believe in the power of God through His Holy Spirit.
    God please help me everyday to trust in your guidance and listen for your direction. Give me the faith of your disciples that I may be a witness to others and strengthen myself. Thank you lord Jesus for all you did and are doing daily in our lives, amen.
