When should you read the Bible?
It is very common for people who decide to read the Bible for the first time to do the logical thing: start at the beginning and read to the end — just like they would read most other books.
What Bible verses should I read?
- John 15:13. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
- Psalm 27:12. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
- Romans 15:13.
- Isaiah 40:31.
- Philippians 4:13.
- Matthews 17:20.
What prayer do you say before reading the Bible?
Pray for God to speak to you through his word
He explained the Scriptures to them. Other translations use the phrase ‘opened their minds’. This is a great verse to pray as you ask Jesus to ‘open your mind’ or ‘supernaturally unlock your understanding’ to the Scriptures.
What does the Bible say to read before and after?
In our church, we usually say This is the Word of the Lord/ Thanks be to God. In a Communion service, it will be: Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew/Mark/Luke/John, followed by Glory to You, O Lord. At the end of the reading, it is This is the Gospel of the Lord, then Praise to You, O Christ.
What is a good Bible to read and understand?
Literal Translation – New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The NASB is arguably the best literal translation you can use. It is the best translation if you are looking at doing an inductive study on a passage or prefer to read as close to the original language as possible.
Where should new believers start reading the Bible?
Start with a Book of the Bible such as John
Part of the reason I would recommend starting with the book of John, and not a book like Genesis, is that John gives you an overview of the story of salvation: the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
What is the most beautiful Bible verse?
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
What is the most important Bible verse?
Salvation. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
How do I know God’s plan for my life?
Following God’s Plan for Your Life:
- Be in prayer. A way to know that you are following God’s plan for your life is by being in prayer.
- Be actively reading in the Word.
- Follow the commands He puts on your heart.
- Seek a godly community.
- Obey the Truth.
How do I pray for a Bible study?
As we open the Bible today we pray that we would hear your voice. We ask that your Holy Spirit would be at work, opening our ears to hear and our hearts to receive your word. May we be transformed into your likeness. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
What should I pray before bed?
Dear God, as I lay me down to sleep, relax the tension of my body; calm the restlessness of my mind; still the thoughts which worry and perplex me. Help me to rest myself and all my problems in your strong and loving arms.
How do you pray a closing prayer in Bible study?
Take a deep breath and say, “Thank you God for this time.”
- God, thank you for this time. Thank you for your word.
- Holy Spirit, thank you for leading me into truth.
- Jesus, thank you for dying for me.
- Father, teach me how you want me to apply Your word in my life.
- Thank you for this time God, I’m never going to say amen.
What do we say after the first reading?
The first reading is followed by a Responsorial Psalm, a complete Psalm or a sizeable portion of one. A cantor, choir or lector leads, and the congregation sings or recites a refrain.

Reading the Bible Out Loud Makes All the Difference
You see, while we have the incredible ability to process written words, there are still some difficulties that come with the territory of written communication. Answer: the benefit of reading the Bible out loud.
What is a good New Testament Scripture for a funeral?
