10th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures by Candace

10. Jesus will draw you close. I promise. In your darkest moments, grab your Bible, open to Psalm 34 and Jesus will meet you there. I have found that to be so true in my own life, time and time again. I come to Him desperate and He draws me in, whispers these words of comfort through His Word and I feel like I’m receiving a hug from my Lord. He just draws us closer to Himself when we spend that time in His Word.

9th Benefit of Praying the Scriptures by Candace

9. Peace and comfort are yours for the taking. There isn’t anything in this world that will fill us with peace like God and His Word. I’m a words kind of girl…words encourage and uplift my soul like not a lot of other things can. But, the words of God? Well they are even more special to me. And when I sit for a few minutes at the start of my day with the Psalms, I am immediately filled with peace. God is so good like that.Tenth Benefit Tomorrow.

8. You can relate to the people of the Bible more readily. I love taking the words of David and praying them. I feel like I know David in a whole new way after reading through the Psalms, looking at where he was at in his life at the time he wrote it, and then praying those words over my own life. Powerful stuff.Ninth Benefit Tomorrow.

7. God’s Word becomes very personal for you. When you take a verse from God’s Word and you place a name inside it or pray it for yourself, when you repeat those words back to God…the whole passage takes on new meaning and becomes much more personal to you. That is what it’s done for me.

6. Your intercessory prayer life grows. Praying for others has now changed for me. I can pray with certainty, I can insert the names of others just like I do for family members. I love praying for others in this way!!Seventh Benefit Tomorrow.

4. Your moments of wordlessness become filled with hope. Often, especially in times of distress, we don’t have words to even speak. Yet, God in His goodness knew those days would come and He provided the Holy Spirit who intercedes on our behalf! {Romans 8.}

3. Your anxiety is eased. Philippians 4:6-7 actually tells us to go to Him in prayer when we are anxious! And then it says, when you pray, His peace will guard your heart and mind!! More prayer = more peace! Fourth Benefit Tomorrow.
