Discover how Scripture can be experienced, not just read!

In one of his last conversations with his disciples, Jesus urged his followers to "remain" in him. But what does it mean to remain in Christ in our daily lives? In Praying the Scriptures for Your Life, popular Bible teacher Jodie Berndt invites you to experience deeper intimacy with Christ as you allow his words from John 15 to transform your perspective as well as your prayers.

  • Guides you in how to pray the Scriptures and let them shape your choices.
  • Covers topics ranging from relationships to faith to money management.
  • Shows how closeness with Christ equips you to bear fruit through your prayers.
  • Is a reminder that you are created for connection with your heavenly Father.
  • Teaches how abiding is the key to abundance.

With short, easy-to-read chapters, the book invites you to read, reflect, and respond as you pray the Scriptures over every area of your life. Discover the peace that comes from abiding in Christ as you sink deep into his Word.
