Why are there so many versions of the Bible? Which one should I read?
KELLY MARTIN says:
People learn different ways. Some like to read the older versions because it is what they are used too. Some can't understand it.
Personally, I like the New Living Translation because I understand it better. It is more like how I speak. Some like other versions. If you aren't sure which verision you can understand more, go to places on the internet like Bible Gateway and look up the same verse with different translations and see which one makes the most sense.

1. Can Jesus help me if I talk to Him? What if I don't know what to say?
2. Does Jesus hear me when I pray? Read more here
3. If I am hurting, will Jesus always be beside me to help me feel better?
Girls, have you ever lost your incentive to pray? You know God’s real. You know He listens. And you know He’s always around, but for the life of you, you can’t find the words to say or even think in prayer.
Maybe you have too much on your mind.
Maybe you feel like everything is going hunky-dory.
Maybe you forget to pray.
Maybe you want to pray, but the words won’t come.
In my first novel, CROSSING THE DEEP, the main character, Rachel, goes through a LOT (I’m notorious for torturing my poor characters). There is a scene where she wants to pray. She closes her eyes… and nothing will come out. Every time she tries, nothing will come. Finally, she gives up, falls under her covers, and goes to sleep.
I’ve been where Rachel has. Have you?
