What People Are Saying

“Scripture is God’s way of initiating a conversation; prayer is our response—and in Praying the Scriptures for Your Life, Jodie Berndt invites us into the dialogue on everything from strengthening our marriage and family relationships, to dealing with fear and anxiety, to discovering what to do in the face of unanswered prayer. This book is a powerful companion for our prayer life!”

Alyssa Joy Bethke, author of Satisfied and host of The Real Life Podcast

“Prayer is such a powerful tool in our lives, but as Jodie Berndt reminds us, it is not a one-way conversation, with most of us doing the talking and asking. Praying the Scriptures for Your Life is a great tool to draw each of us closer to God, especially in these uncertain times. As you pause to pray over the next thirty-one days, you will see God’s provision and power work miracles in your life. God’s Word is alive and active and sharper than any double-edged sword and is meant to draw us closer to the One who desires an intimate relationship with us.”

Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Growing Slow and It’s All Under Control

“If you long for your prayer life to be more than just a shopping list of personal requests and a few quick “Bless them, Lord” sentiments for others, Praying the Scriptures for Your Life is just the resource you need. Packed with practical ways to deepen your walk with God, Jodie’s book will guide you to an enriched prayer time as you not only become resolved to make connecting with God a priority but are shown just how to do so.
