I have been challenged by a Sunday School  class to come up with all the Bible verses that tell us to get in Prayer and get in the Scriptures.  There are many, but I don't know how to get to them.

Open Factbook and type in prayer. You will get lots of cross-references to consider.

Search for pray,prayer in the bible and then use the right-click Context menu to find a command on the left side e.g. Informative, Assertive. Then select a Search on the other side  e.g. {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Assert>} or {Section <SpeechAct = Oblig: Direct>}

Then modify it for prayer e.g. pray,prayer WITHIN {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Assert>}

For Scriptures, try read,study,scripture WITHIN {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Assert>}  or

                              read,study,scripture WITHIN {Section <SpeechAct = Oblig: Direct>}

You can combine as follows: pray,prayer WITHIN {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Assert>}, {Section <SpeechAct = Oblig: Direct>}

This will eliminate overlap between the two.
