Praying with Scripture

See Scott’s presentation HERE

If Jesus prayed with Scripture, so should we. One of the best ways to cultivate a close relationship with Jesus is to listen to him as he speaks, and he speaks through the Gospels. Jesus expects us to know and observe his word:  “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock” (Matthew 7:24). Some of the strongest and most durable building blocks of our spiritual foundation are laid with time spent in prayer with Scripture.
