When I left the Roman Catholic Church I took only one redeemable thing with me and that was Lectio Divina or how to pray the scriptures. On my third time through the Bible I made a point of it to search the scriptures daily for biblical prayers. Habakkuk 3:17-19 is perhaps my favorite in all of scripture because it demands us that whatever the circumstance we trust God.
2nd Chronicles 20:12 is another great Lectio Divina. Three enemies are coming against a godly king yet his prayer is fantastic. O LORD, WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU. How often do we have that sort of prayer Today?
God responded in a most unconventional way. He told Israel to sing praises to God as three fully equipped enemies bore down on them. STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD. Immediately two of the armies wiped out the third one and then the two remaining armies battled each other till none was left. Israel trusted God through insurmountable odds.
When you pray the Scriptures as you read each word prayerfully focus your full attention on the Lord and deliverance. Offer a seasoning of Thanksgiving for good measure. Pray that His Spirit will allow you to compare spiritual thins with spiritual. You will greatly enrich your prayer life through the scriptures.
