4 Things To Pray Before You Read Your Bible

Over the years, my bible reading has been immensely helped by John Piper’s acrostic prayer I.O.U.S. It’s a prayer that really gets at what we need God to do for us and our hearts when we come to the Bible. It’s honest about where our hearts are usually at when we open the word, and desperately pleads for God to change them.

So here’s a little graphic I made that lays out the acrostic and hopefully encourages you to ask God to do all these things each and every time you open your Bible.
