Hide God’s Word in Your Heart this Year

Happy New Year!

The new year is a great time to start a new Scripture memory program. Fighter Verses exists to help equip and encourage believers to fight the fight of faith through Scripture memory. We pray these resources will help you in your efforts to memorize in the coming year.

  • Children Desiring God is offering all printed Fighter VersesFighter Verses-ExtendedFoundation Verses, and Song CDs at a 10% discount through January 18, 2015. Use code FV2015 when you check out to receive the discount. (Note: The discount does not apply to our 10-packs, since those are already available at a reduced price.)
  • The Fighter Verse App is available for $2.99 for iPhone® and iPad®Android®, and Kindle®. The Fighter Verse App provides a weekly passage of Scripture to memorize (1 passage/week for 5 years), review tools, quizzes, Foundation Verses for preschool children (with pictures to quiz pre-readers), an “add your own verse” feature, several Bible versions to choose from, and more. We pray that this tool would help many believers fight the fight of faith through memorizing God’s Word. Read more about Fighter Verse App features.
  • Not a techie sort of person? Make your own verse cards instead. Just copy and paste the references for the verses you want to print and the Verse Card Maker will create flash cards that you can print with the reference on one side and the verse or passage on the other.
  • Ask your small group or some friends to join you in your efforts to memorize Scripture. Being held accountable is a great way to ensure you will accomplish your memorization goalsnot just start strong in January and taper off later in the year.
  • Read an article on how to memorize to help yourself succeed. Make a plan for when and how you will memorize, and what you will do to review verses on a regular basis.
  • If you struggle to memorize, songs are a great way to do it (just think of all the advertising jingles you learned without even trying!). The songs are on the website each week as a free download. Song CDs are available for sale on Children Desiring God as well as amazon and digital downloads are available on iTunes.
  • If you are interested in promoting Bible memory at your church, be sure to read this article on church-wide Bible memory (view as PDF). There are many helpful suggestions to make a church-wide memory program successful. (If you are promoting Fighter Verses at your church feel free to use these posters: Poster 1 / Poster 2)
  • Visit The Verses Project for more songs and beautiful, verse-inspired artwork for your smart phone.
  • And last, we leave you with this exhortation from John Piper and we ask you to join us in memorizing God’s Word in the year ahead:

    Are there songs available for Fighter Verse Set 2? I didn’t see them on the Children Desiring God webpage. We’ll be starting Set 2 this fall, and the songs have been invaluable in aiding us! Thank you for all your hard work in helping us!!

      Hi Lydia…We’re so glad to hear that the songs have been so helpful. Currently the only sets available as CDs are Sets 1, 3, & 4 (plus the Extended Set 5). However, Set 2 songs are available to listen and download from the FighterVerses.com website and on the FighterVerses App. Or, if you really want CDs, you could consider choosing another set to learn this year. There’s no reason you would have to work through the sets in numerical order.

      For the CDs, the next set to be released will be Set 5, hopefully by the end of this year. After Set 5 is finished, the Fighter Verse Songs team will cycle back to Set 2 and work on completing it. So although Set 2 could appear by the end of this year, it may well not be available until sometime in 2016. As soon as set 2 has been finished, we’ll make it available on our website.

      May the Lord continue to bless you as you hide His Word in your heart!
