A personal Preface from the author
"I discovered the practice of praying Scripture in March of 1985. It revolutionized both my prayer life and ministry more than anything since. It’s influence on my life has been incalculable. So I am eager to recommend William Varner’s book as a place to learn how to pray the Bible. His vast collection of Scripture passages and Bible-based prayers from Christian history are organized in a way that’s simple to follow and make the practice easy to understand. Once you’ve read this book, you’ll be able to open to any part of your Bible and know how to turn it into prayer."
Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY. Author of Praying the Bible, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, and Family Worship.
“As Christ-followers, we all know the necessity of prayer, but we don’t always experience the joy of it. William Varner’s Handbook for Praying Scripture is a Godsend to those of us who have found ourselves in a rut of monotonous prayers, searching for a better path. The daily guides offer enough structure to keep us on track but with fresh Scripture each day to ensure our time with the Lord is rich and meaningful – and filled with joy!”
Martha Harding, Director of Grace Women, Grace Baptist Church
"Anyone reading the Scriptures observes rather quickly that our Savior and His disciples emphasized prayer as a priority, not only in ministry, but even more importantly, in daily life. But most Christians, including myself, struggle to make prayer a daily discipline. The Handbook for Praying Scripture is a great resource for those who struggle in prayer or are looking for new ideas of how to pray in a biblically sound way. This is a welcome aid to the Christian’s devotional life."
Peter Goeman, Assistant Professor of Old Testament & Biblical Languages, Shepherd’s Theological Seminary
