30 Days of Praying for Your Local High School: Day 6 Scripture

30 Days of Prayer

When Brad and I were doing youth ministry in Maryland, and then later when we taught English in China, our directors had us memorize the “TMS A Packet,” also known as “The Wheel.”  The Wheel comes from the Navigators ministry, and is used to illustrate the balanced life of an obedient Christian.  Today as I walked around the high school, (pushing Oliver in the stroller again) I recited the two scriptures that make up the “Prayer” spoke of The Wheel:

  • “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.”  –John 15:7
  • “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:6-7

Romans 10:17 tells us that, “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”  In Bible Study Fellowship this week we read that, “The best way to believe the Bible is to expose yourself intentionally and steadily to the Bible.  Take a long look at Jesus Christ…you will find that faith grows within you.”

Scripture can give direction to our prayers; it can also increase our faith and belief in God.  Prayer can ease our anxieties, give us peace, and guard our hearts and minds.   God promises that if we remain in him, and keep his words in us, he will answer our prayers.

What passages of scripture do you have memorized?  Have you tried reading or reciting scripture as part of your prayers?
