Read, Pray, Love: Scripture & Prayer Challenge

We are busy moms and homemakers who are trying to juggle all of our many responsibilities. Sometimes it seems impossible to just catch our breath! But we know deep down that making time to spend in the Word and in prayer is critical. 

If you want to be a woman of prayer who gets into scripture every day, prays it over her family, hides it in her heart, and lives it out in real life… you’re going to love the Read, Pray, Love Scripture and prayer challenge!

Be more intentional in prayer this year with the Read, Pray, Love Scripture & prayer challenge from Proverbial Homemaker!

What is the Read, Pray, Love Scripture & Prayer Challenge?

Read, Pray, Love is a Scripture and prayer challenge that the Proverbial Homemaker community has been doing for years. Each year is a little different, but the main goal is to be more intentional in reading God’s Word, praying through the Scripture, and putting it into action by loving God and others. Many of us also use it as an opportunity to memorize verses.

12 Months of Themed Scripture Verse Calendars to Pray and Write

Join the Proverbial Homemaker community for the 2021 Read, Pray, Love Scripture and prayer challenge!

Go here to download all 12 months of the Scripture calendar printables (or just choose the ones you want).Here’s what’s included in each printable: 

  • Scripture calendar – 30 verses to read in your Bible, pray through, and write out if desired. I like using these these spiral notecard packs to write the verse and my prayer each day. A main memory verse is highlighted. There’s also a spot for you to record prayer requests you’re praying for and a place to jot down practical actions the Scripture inspires you to do this month to love God and others.
  • Kid’s journal page – Your kids can use this page to create a drawing based on the memory verse. There are also places for them to write down things they can thank God for, ways they can love others this month, and things they are praying for. I recommend posting it on the wall or fridge and helping them come back to it a few times during the month. 
  • Coloring page – This year we’re doing a Scripture doodle coloring page each month for you and your kids! You’ll find one in ESV and KJV. 

Read, Pray, Love is an annual event in the Proverbial Homemaker community. You'll find monthly scripture printables as well as prayer binder setup files to make it easier to get in God's Word, pray the scripture, and hiding it in your heart. 52 weeks of scripture printables, 52 weeks of praying the scriptures, and more!
