Today's Devotion: Aug. 4

Penned Prayers

When was the last time you wrote a prayer with pen and ink? We have many methods of prayer, and we should try all of them. But we have two great encouragements to add written prayers to the mix—our Bibles and our hymnals.

In the Bible, many of our heroes wrote out their prayers. Study the Psalms, for example, and notice how many are written prayers. The prophets, such as Jonah and Habakkuk, left us with recorded prayers on the printed page. The apostle Paul composed prayers for most of his congregations.

In the hymnbook, many of our great songs are prayers written to God and designed to be read and sung to Him. Think of the hymn “How Great Thou Art.” The words aren’t written about God but addressed to Him: “O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder….”

Sometimes we have trouble focusing our thoughts in prayer or harnessing our emotions. In such times, it’s often helpful to write out a prayer and perhaps then share it verbally. God can read as well as He can hear; He knows your scribbling as well as He knows your soul.

Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.
