How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments. ~ Psalm 119:9-10

read the bible

I love Psalm 119! It is full of verses that talk about loving God’s commands, statutes, law, and precepts. Of course, all of those words mean the Bible.

If you and your children have worked your way through this Prayer Series, then I commend you, and I’m sure you already have a quiet Bible time set aside.

Even as we read the Bible we should be in prayer.

Before Reading the Bible

Before reading the scriptures, encourage your kids to pray asking God to give them understanding of the verses they are about to see. Have them pray that the Holy Spirit would help them to focus on the insights he will reveal.

Then have your children read for their quiet time. Even better, if they are situated in a prayer place, ask them to whisper the scripture out loud. That way they are seeing AND hearing the words. As the Holy Spirit works, he will cause the words to come alive and, at times, be sharper than a two-edged sword.

After Reading the Bible

If you have Bible reading at the same time, when it ends, have everyone gather together. Lead your children to pray that they will obey what they read and that the Holy Spirit will remind them of the scriptures when needed. Pray as a group until the habit is formed.

Encourage your children to read, pray, and read some more until God answers their prayers, or they see a change in their situation.

God might even change their desires.

Now Pray!

I hope this series has helped you form new habits with your children. Keep at it! You are doing great things.
