The World Prayer Team Bible Reading Plan

“Effective prayer starts with knowing what the Word of God says about your situation.”
Stovall Weems, from his book “Awakening


I said it recently in an email update and I firmly believe that so many times we are desperate to hear a word from God regarding the season or trial we are walking through, that we forget He may have already given us the answer we need in His Word.

Being in the Word of God on a daily basis is CRITICAL to having a powerful and intimate relationship with God. Reading the Bible should not be something we do only when we are desperate for an answer from God or have no other place to turn. It’s a lifestyle that we all should live.

We’re The World Prayer TEAM! (We’re in this TOGETHER)

We were not created to be alone, we were created to live in fellowship with each other. The Word tells us in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” To put it simply, There is power in numbers.

I don’t know about you, but it’s always easier for me to create a habit or build a discipline in my life when I do it with others.

That’s why I’m so excited to launch the World Prayer Team Bible Reading Plan! A simple way for our community to become unified not only in prayer but in the reading and study of The Word.

Here’s How It Will Work.

Simply join the World Prayer Team group on to subscribe to the plan. You can read through the plan online, on your mobile device (free app, just search Faithlife) or print the year long plan and keep it in your Bible.



Don’t envy sinners, but always continue to fear the Lord. You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed. (Proverbs 23:17, 18 NLT) #bible #proverbs #wisdom
