Pray from the ♥

PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 continues here on GUWG, where we’ve been praying through some of the most inspiring sections of Scripture together.

We’ll close today with a Psalm from David — a man after God’s own heart. Pray through it with all YOUR heart:

PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 continues here on GUWG where for the next week we’ll be praying through some of the most inspiring sections of Scripture together.

So unplug, unwind, un-whatever-it-is-you’re-doing and prepare to spend some quality time with the Lord.

We’ll start today with a pair of prayers from someone the Bible refers to as a “man after God’s own heart” – David:

Go. Do. Now.

We’ve reached the end of our Stamp Out Bible Illiteracy Gently (SOBIG) festivities here on GUWG.

To review …

Last week, we kicked things off with our official Bible Quiz-o-rama to help us assess our Bible literacy. Then we analyzed the Bible’s overall plot, boiled it down to one noun (JESUS) and then one verb (LOVE).

Where To Keep Your Bible

We continue our Stamp Out Bible Illiteracy (Gently) festivities here on GUWG.

Last week, we kicked things off with our official Bible Quiz-o-rama to help assess our Bible literacy. Since then, we’ve been going through a slew of ways to get more Bibleishness into our lives.

Today, we discover that the Bible even tells us where to keep our Bibles:

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11)

In other words, keep it here …

Last week, we kicked things off with our official Bible Quiz-o-rama to help assess our Bible literacy. We then went through a slew of ways to get more Bible into our s.

This week, we’re taking a deeeeep dive into this question:
What exactly is the Bible?

Today, we’ll look at what Jesus himself said.

Jesus’ Scripture was the Old Testament. He had a lot to say about it. In fact, Jesus quoted or paraphrased the OT nearly 50 times in the Gospels.

Right after his baptism, the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness where he was tempted by Satan. How did he conquer Satan’s attacks? With Scripture. He said:

The Bible on the Bible

Last week, we kicked things off with our official Bible Quiz-o-rama to help us all assess our level of Bible literacy. We then went through a slew of ways to get more Bible into our s.

Yesterday, we started answering this question: What exactly is the Bible?

Last week, we kicked things off with a little quiz to assess your Bible literacy. We then went through a slew of ways to get more Bible into your .

Next we’ll address a seemingly basic question: What exactly is the Bible?

The Bible is a collection of 66 books written over a 1,600-year period by 40 authors in 3 languages on 3 continents depicting nearly 3,000 characters in more than 1,500 locations through which God chose to reveal Himself via a variety of prose, poetry and prophecy.

Why on earth would any sane, normal, modern person spend any time with a book like that? As we discussed last week, here’s what the Bible itself says:
