Join me in August for book club on Instagram!
Jodie Berndt wrote the first book that helped me to truly flesh out PRAYING THE SCRIPTURES. Her book Praying the Scriptures for Your Children is probably my most purchased item on Amazon. LOL! I have given it as baby gifts for years, I have even given it as incentives on my young living oil team! LOL!!
Well, she has a NEW book out called Praying the Scriptures for Your Life and we are going to read that together and pray one verse each day in August!
When we do a Scripture study or focus or read a book on Instagram, every morning I get onto my stories (the little profile circles at the top of your feed) and just chat for a minute or two about that day’s verse. I have grown to LOVE this short little glimpse & the community that has joined me there! I also save them so that you can watch them if you miss a few days! You can even go back and watch the studies we’ve done in the past because they are all saved in my highlights!
A Glimpse into the Book
The book starts off with Chapter 1 titled What is Abiding? So good! There are 3 chapters and then Part 2 of the book is 31 Days of Prayer using Scripture for each daily prayer.
She gives you a short devotional, several Scriptures to read and then writes out prayers each day based on various Scripture passages!! I love this so much!
I can’t wait to read this in August with you!
+ Grab the book!
+ Start reading the first 3 chapters so we will be ready to start the 31 day prayer plan on august 1st (no biggie if you haven’t read it by then.)
+ Most every morning in August I will share on my stories (make sure you know how to find them! Those are the little circles at the top of your Instagram feed, click on my little profile circle to listen/watch. I will NOT be posting daily in my feed for this book study.) I usually share a verse or quote or something that has stuck out to me from the day’s reading. I will also have graphics and prayers you can screenshot and save each morning.
+ This is very informal yet so powerful because we are doing it together, which means we are all more likely to finish the book/plan!
+ You can make this as much or little as you want to! Make it your own! I suggest grabbing a blank notebook or journal to get the most out of it! Write the verse & your prayer out each morning if you like!
+ But the most important thing is you and Jesus. Open your Bible, read, and TALK TO HIM. Don’t get caught up in worrying that you’re behind or you missed a day. The goal is MORE OF JESUS, not to follow a man-made plan. Each moment with Jesus is the goal. Growing our relationship with Him through prayer & His Word is the goal. Focus on HIM.
+ Follow the author and check out the link in her profile for a printable 31 day calendar to go along with this book!
+ Get ready to have your prayer life transformed. Praying the Scriptures has grown my prayer life like nothing else. Come expectant. Pray now for God to do a work in your life. Trust & believe that He will.
