Bible Reading Plan for 2013

Well, here we are almost at the end of the of another year. Reflecting on this past year, one of the greatest blessings for me has been my daily "read the Bible through" program. I have attempted many times before to stick with a plan, but...are you ready for this??? this is the first year that I will be completing the program.

Don't has not come without falling behind, interruptions, etc., but it has been worth it. I highly recommend using the "You Version" application that is a free download from either Android or iTunes. This year I have used the Discipleship Journal in English. Next year, by God's grace, I want to try to read through the same plan in Spanish.

Why am I saying this to you? Well, I do believe that this same "read the Bible through" plan can benefit you too!!

Here are some other ideas for reading plans for free!

Let's pray together for a 2013 dedicated to the reading, studying, meditating, and application of the Words of Christ!

In all things...Christ preeminent!

Some thoughts on prayer

Jerram Barrs, Professor at Covenant Theological Seminary, offers some great thoughts regarding the matter of where to begin with prayer. Here is a quote from his work "The Heart of Evangelism."

Recognizing our dependence on The Lord to bring people to faith in Christ, what should be the focus of our prayers? God has placed each of us in a "family" of those we love and those who love us--both actual family members and also the "family" of our close friends, the people whose lives have become closely intertwined with ours. Our first and perfectly appropriate desire will be to pray for these people whom we already love.
