Prayer Action Verbs

As we pray to God, sometimes we have trouble articulating the words our hearts want to express. One of the prayers from the Lutheran book of prayer really struck me with the different variety of action verbs used:

  • Grant
  • Protect
  • Preserve
  • Help
  • Keep
  • Remove
  • Give
  • Enable
  • Fill

This sounds like an interesting list that can totally grow to include other verbs (and there will be making another post here in the future with a longer verb list and maybe some more analysis of the types of verbs). They say action verbs are more powerful in resumes. Well, how about some action verbs for prayer to get your heart and mind going.
