Overview

Learn to pray with (every part of) the Bible. Do you already read the Bible and apply its teachings in your everyday life? Well, there's much more to how you might understand the words of the Old and New Testaments, according to popular educator Page Zyromski. Now—it's time to pray with the Bible, too! With lively reflections and experiential exercises, Zyromski takes you step-by-step through a variety of approaches to praying with Scripture. She encourages attentive listening and a sense of humor as you make God's Word a deeper part of your prayer life. Discover how to create "a posture of attention" and how to listen in ways you may not have thought possible. Learn ways to pray with every portion of the Bible, from Genesis through the prophets, the Gospel through the Book of Revelation—even the lists, genealogies, and those "tough" psalms. "This is a roll-up-your-sleeves sort of book. If you truly want to pray the Bible, and not just read about the Bible, let's start immediately!" - from the book
