Prompts to Help You Pray

Learn more in our Dawn Treader Magazine

One way to get Bible verses thoroughly embedded in our minds and hearts is to pray them as well as read them. Scripture contains many wonderful examples of prayer for us to use in our own lives. The most well known Biblical prayer is the Lord’s Prayer. Another example is the prayer below, taken from Psalm 119 and Paul’s letter to the Philippians, chapter 1, verses 9-11.


Dear Lord,
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
I will not forget Your word.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
May our love abound more and more,
with knowledge and all
discernment, so that we may approve
what is excellent, and so
be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit
of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ,
to the glory
and praise of God.
