Lenten Prayer: Five Things to Pray for SpringsLife in 2014 – A Hunger for the Bible
If you can’t join us in person at the ministry center on Fridays at 7pm, then join us from wherever you are and pray with us!
Pray for a Hunger for the Bible
John 17:17 (ESV)
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”
If the goal of the church is Christ-likeness, then the diet for the church must be the Bible. After all, it is the Bible that God uses to make the child of God more like the Son of God. Therefore, we can pray that the church would be filled with people who hunger for hearing from God in their private devotions, public gatherings, and conversations with other believers. Imagine the impact of a church full of people who wake up eager to come and hear the Word preached on Sunday morning. Imagine a church that longs to open the Bible each morning to discover anew the truth of God’s character and conquests. Imagine hearts so overflowing with the Bible that their text messages, conversations, and meditations just drip with the Scriptures. Everything pivots on what we do with the Bible.
PRAYER: Our Father, give our church—give me—an abiding delight in your Word. Cause me always to hunger for the truth while being ever satisfied with the truth. Lord, make our church a Bible-saturated church.
