One study skill that is often overlooked is prayer. We need God’s guidance and direction in our lives and His strength in our studies. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” Acknowledging Him in all our ways includes our studies. Come before God in prayer and ask for His help in studying. Don’t underestimate the role prayer can play in it. Prayer realigns our focus to remind us who we are studying for. Are we studying for ourselves or for our God?
