Join Me in Praying the Bible

I am thrilled to announce two important items:

1. Now available! The book I’ve long wanted to write: Praying the Bible.

2. A free, five-part video series from Crossway where I illustrate how to pray the Bible.


The bookDoes your prayer life seem boring? Do you have a hard time consistently communing with God? When you pray, do you find yourself saying the same old things about the same old things?

What if we aren’t the problem? What if the problem we all struggle with is our method?

I am convinced that there is a simple, permanent, biblical solution to the almost-universal problem of saying the same old things about the same old things. That solution is to pray the Bible.

In the past 20 years of traveling to speak in churches and conferences, this is the subject I’ve been asked to speak on more than any other. Other than the gospel itself, teaching people to pray the Bible has been by far the most instantaneously and permanently transformational message I’ve ever taught. And for me personally, there is nothing in all my devotional life that more quickly and consistently kindles my consistently cold heart in prayer like praying the Bible.

To get a copy (hardback, Kindle, or audio), to get more information about the book, or to download a free sample, here are links to Crossway’s website, to Amazon, to christianaudio, or to my website where you might choose to go for bulk orders.


The video seriesIn conjunction with Crossway, I’ve recorded a five-part video series illustrating how to pray the Bible. If you’ll go here, you’ll be asked to sign-up with your email address to receive an email each day for five days.

Each day’s email will contain a short (3 to 5 minute) video where I teach briefly about praying the Bible and then illustrate how to pray through a passage of Scripture.

For example, the first day I demonstrate what it might look like for a person to pray through Psalm 23. The next day I show how a person might pray through Psalm 37, and so forth for five days.

These videos would also be useful to teach your family, class, or small group how to pray the Bible.

I think Crossway did a great job with these videos, and I’d love to have you join me for the next five days to learn how to pray the Bible.


By His grace and for His glory,

Don Whitney
