Stepping Stones

A Monthly Devotional, by Michaela Popielski.

Hi everyone. My name is Michaela, I’m 17 and I had this idea to start a monthly devotional because reading The Bible is so important to our spiritual lives such as fruit, veggies and meat are needed for our physical bodies. Well I’ve been wanting to start this devotional for a while and I think its time I started. I’ve decided to call it ‘Stepping Stones’ since God wants us to be stepping stones and not stumbling blocks for other people. This devotional is for August and I think the theme should be on prayer and peace.

How many of you struggle with consistent and sincere praying? I know I do. If you don’t then that’s awesome. Before I totally sold out to Christ I wasn’t that much into prayer. I mean I prayed just to get by and to avoid going to Hell. Even though I was practically born in church and had given my life to Christ and I’ve been going since I could remember it all seemed routine to me. Get up, do chores, eat breakfast etc. and go to church. I loved it as a kid but I didn’t understand what they were really talking about. I mean when you’re three, four, five, six you think ‘church is where Jesus is’. Which he is but there’s so much more to it And it didn’t click till I was a sophomore in high school. Long time right? Well that’s how most if not all of us think of it. ‘I’ll pray to stay on God’s good side’ or ‘Dear Lord’ and you fall asleep mid – prayer. I’ve done both and I regret it. But that’s how we are: sinners, human and any other terms you can think of. (Within reason of course.) Well thanks to Google and some thought and prayer I’ve compiled a collection of bible verses all about prayer. Please don’t think I cheated on finding verses or anything but I lost my bible and my memory hasn’t been that good. Anyway I hope you enjoy this collection of verses. Also a tip: if you have trouble focusing or paying attention if you want play worship music. It helps and keeps you focused on the verses and what they are saying. So without further adieu here are the verses.


P.S. I kept it light this time so with the end of summer plans and back to school shopping you’ll still get your bible in without stress. Maybe you could pray for less stress.
