Pray the Word

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Jesus was hungry. He had been in the wilderness for forty days without eating a single thing. At the height of His physical weakness, the enemy crept close to Him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” That was the first of three temptations Jesus fought against that day. But He answered confidently with the Scripture, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God.'” Jesus was victorious by knowing the Word of God and hiding it in His heart. So let me encourage you today—make a habit in your life to memorize Scripture and then pray them. The Bible is living and breathing and active in our lives. And it doesn’t just change our lives, it can be used to change the lives of those around us! Hide God’s Word in your heart. For more on prayer and sharing your faith, visit our website at That’s
