First, let me say that I believe the Bible is true. It is the Word of God. That means it has power to do what it says and accomplish its purposes. This is why it’s so important to read and study the Bible in a prayerful way-because as we read, we can pray that God would use His truth to change our lives. If you’re ready to allow God’s Word to transform your life, use this list of 4 ways to pray with the Bible in your quiet times:

Pray that God would open your eyes to see His truths in His Word.

The Bible is the primary source of truth for the Christian, and it is the foundation upon which our faith rests. When we pray for God to open our eyes to see His truth in the Scriptures, we are asking Him to give us wisdom and discernment as we study. This will help us make sense of what He has said so that we may apply it to our lives properly (2 Timothy 3:15–17).

Pray that God would turn you into a person of faith and prayer.

It’s a great idea to pray for God to help you grow in faith and prayer. You can do this by asking Him to give you wisdom and understanding, so that you will know what it means to have faith in Him. Or perhaps you would like God to help make your faith stronger so that even when things around you look bleak, He can still fill your heart with hope and peace.

Pray that God would give you the grace to be a doer of the Word.

This prayer will be useful when you pray your morning and evening prayers. You can ask God to give you the grace to be a doer of the Word. God’s Word is powerful, living and active; it is sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). The Word of God can make you wise (2 Timothy 3:16) so that you may be able to understand what the Spirit means by His teachings. It can also make you righteous (Romans 1:17) so that all who believe in Christ Jesus become heirs of eternal life (1 John 5:1). And finally, the Word of God has power over sin in our lives through faith in Christ Jesus alone for salvation (1 John 1:9).

The truth of God’s Word is powerful to change lives, including yours.

The Bible is powerful to change lives, including yours.

The Bible is truth. We know this because Jesus said that it was true (John 17:17), and the apostle Paul quoted the Old Testament as scripture which was inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16). The Bible also tells us that if you base your beliefs on something other than God’s Word, you will not be able to please Him (Romans 10:17).

The Bible is life (John 5:39). The life of Jesus Christ came in fullness through His death on the cross, burial and resurrection. He offers this same abundant life to anyone who believes in Him as Savior and Lord over their lives; they become a born-again Christian who receives eternal life through faith in Christ’s death for their sins—the payment for their sins! This means that now there can be no more separation between them and God because God has forgiven those sins through what Christ did for them at Calvary! Now they are new creatures in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Conclusion

So go ahead and pick up your Bible. Begin to pray with it, meditate on it, and let the Word of God transform you as you pray through it.
