Prayer and the Word

Beeda Speis posts to her blog every day, but some days, due to time constraints or writer’s block, all she can share is a prayer and the word. Somedays, it may just be a Bible verse or passage.

It’s her prayer that the Bible verse will be the exact one that a reader needs to read at the exact time the reader needs to read it. God’s sovereignty is over all things, and all things work to bring Him glory.

It’s through prayer and being in the word that we draw closer to God. Taking that time to be still and focus only on Him allows us to build a more intimate relationship with our Father.
