-taken from “Praying the Scriptures for Your Teenagers”  by Jodie Berndt

i love using these books that use the scriptures as prayers.  it is a great way to see how the Bible applies to OUR daily lives.  we know that the Bible speaks truth.  promises that we can claim because they are the words of Christ. quick little prayers that we can use as examples when praying for our teens.
