A Prayer to Give Us Courage

If you are here from Getting Real Ministries, here is a small prayer for you as you grow in study of God's Word. (If you want to see the article that prompted this prayer, head over to the GRM blog).

Heavenly Father,

Your Word, the Bible, is alive and active, mysterious and holy, and sometimes intimidating and scary. But we don't want to be afraid. We want to be courageous. 

Grant us, Lord, that we may become women who learn to love the Bible. 

May we become women who learn to study your Word. Show us how to turn a study of your Word into an adventure. Direct us to a book, a chapter or a verse where we should stay awhile. Prompt us forward when it's time to move on. And veer us off course when we need a different path.

Lead us and teach us, Lord.


Here are a few verses to help you understand what God has to say about His holy book:

Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Psalm 119:105 - Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Isaiah 40:8 - The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.

Psalm 18:30 - As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord's word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him.
