The Best Story Ever Told

We thank God for the gift of words– the way they can stir our imaginations with tales of talking lions and wicked witches. Through books, we can explore new worlds that are built meticulously from brains God knit himself. We discover true stories about world-traveling adventures, world-shattering hardships, or philosophical ruminations about what it actually means to be human.

We get to know different people, different cultures, and different points of view– all without actually leaving the page (or our bed).

The best thing about the best stories is that they’re retellings of the truest one of all– reminders of what it means to be brave, to be loved, to be known, to be redeemed.

As you crack open the pages of your book today– whichever one it might be– use this prayer to invite God to meet you there. 

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).

A Prayer for Reading a Book

Word of Life, open my eyes to see you and my mind to learn more about you through these pages. Author of Creation, protect me against anything that would lead me astray. Help me hold on to all that is true, good, and beautiful. May I sense your presence as I read and find you closer with each turning page. Amen.
