Pray the Word with David Platt is a daily podcast hosted by author, pastor, and teacher David Platt.
The podcast is a series of “daily meditations on God’s Word that not only drives us to pray, but how to pray.” Platt begins each 3- to 5-minute episode with a short Scripture verse, followed by a reflective piece that is intended to motivate, challenge, and encourage you in your personal walk with God. He finishes with a prayer that applies the scripture to your life.
Platt speaks with passion and honesty. The way he prays through the scripture will allow you to find new insight in what the Word says. Platt uses simple language that is understandable for people who are in all walks of life. He takes a digestible approach to challenging topics such as the Spirit of God, temptation, sacrifice, and hopelessness, while also offering a new look at more common topics like love, prayer, and living by faith.
In a life that seems to constantly be moving too quickly, I encourage you to take six minutes and listen to one of the episodes of Pray the Word with David Platt. Pay attention to how his connection between Scripture and his reflection apply to your life. Pray with him as he prays over you. Allow this six minutes to be an opportunity for you to be aware of the presence of God.
Pray the Word with David Platt is released daily and can be found on most podcast services.
