Paul visited the city of Corinth in Greece two times (Acts 1 and established a church there. It was no easy process. Corinth was inundated with Greek thought and worldly practices. The worship of gods and sensuality permeated every aspect of society. And here, nestled in the middle of all this was the church in Corinth. Paul had a difficult time keeping the world out of the church so his letters hammered home the truth, outlining how a Christian must live and what a church must do. 1 & 2 Corinthians are still handbooks for the church today, struggling against worldly influence. Contained in these books are some of the most quoted and examined passages in Christianity. Topics such as marriage (1 Cor.7), communion (1 Cor.11), spiritual gifts (1 Cor.12), love (1 Cor.13), the resurrection (1 Cor.15), the new body (2 Cor.5), giving (2 Cor.9) and Paul’s thorn in the flesh (2 Cor.12). Paul’s teachings have created a foundation of belief that has withstood nearly 2,000 years. The books of Corinthians focus on your relationship with God and your relationship with other believers in the church. Praying through them and knowing these books are crucial to help you live victoriously in an ungodly world. PRAYING THROUGH THE BIBLE SERIES recognizes the power of God speaking to mankind through His Scriptures. God’s word was not only meant to be read, but applied. We must apply ourselves to these passages and adjust our lives to God’s will. Today, God uses many ways to speak to us. This book incorporates those avenues of communication to ensure that God will speak to you during your quiet time with Him. Each section asks the reader to do six things. 1. Read the passage. Open up the Bible and read His Word. 2. Memorize the passage. A certain verse is given special focus. Commit it to memory. Remember it all day. 3. Understand the passage. Background information (Time, Characters, Place, What’s Happening) help you to understand the context of the section you are reading. 4. Read the prayer. Read the written prayer as if it is from your heart. Don’t recite them as words from a page, but a plea from your soul. 5. Keep praying. Prayer prompts are there to help you continue praying about other specific areas. Listen to the Holy Spirit and see if there is more you need to pray. 6. Journal your thoughts. In the space provided, write down some thoughts that you feel God said to your during this time. Every five sections I’ve included a “Prayer Thoughts” page to give you more room to journal your thoughts and write down prayer requests as you go through the Bible. Get ready to spend some quality time with God. Get ready for God to speak to you through His Word.
