Reading Plans

There are countless ways to read through the Bible, whether you want to focus on a particular topic, you want to read through an entire Book or Testament, or you want to meditate on a specific chapter or passage for several days at a time. The most important thing is that you find a method that you'll stick with. Here are a handful of reading plans of varying lengths to help give you options in the hopes that you'll find one that works for you.
This reading plan is designed to take you through the entire Bible in 365 days. Each day, you'll read a selection of chapters and passages from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. If you've never read through the whole Bible before, this is a great way to begin!
If you're seeking a breakthrough in a particular area of your life, this reading plan focused on the power of prayer and fasting could be the perfect encouragement! Designed to accompany a 21-day fast, this plan will challenge you to develop these crucial tools of Spiritual Warfare.


Devotionals are a fantastic way to supplement your daily Bible reading with insights and encouragement from Christian authors that will often inspire you to dig deeper on a particular topic or passage of Scripture. Below are links to a handful of devotionals that we believe are worth every penny for members of the Urban Hope family.

It’s one thing to know about God— it’s a different thing to be known by God. Prayer and
fasting are powerful ways to prepare to receive His presence, and all that He has planned for
your life, as well as grow deeper in your walk with Him as you proclaim, More of you and
less of me.
Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough. In order for
it to become a part of our life, it needs to become something we look forward to. This guide from Pastor Chris Hodges will help transform your prayer life. 

This printable prayer wheel taken from the book "One Hour That Changes the World" is an excellent resource to help you to focus and be more intentional with your prayer time.
