Praying through who I am, by the grace of God

  • Ask God to highlight the particular reality that is most needed in your life at this time. Slowly read through the lists and read a few of the Scripture references.
  • Meditate on one of the passages and it’s truth. Think through what it means and how that truth relates to you, as you are in Jesus!
  • Memorize the Scripture associated with the truth. Journal some of your thoughts as you make the Biblical truth personal. If you are creative, consider writing a poem or song or piece of art.
