PRAYER CORNER’S PRAYER GUIDE IS BASED ON GOD’S WORD.

PRAYING SCRIPTURE SUMMARY TEACHING, UPDATE, 11.11.19

 

PRAYING SCRIPTURE:

Praying God’s Word is the single most effective form of prayer:

  • Praying God’s Word gets us INTO HIS WORD, which facilitates
  • KNOWING HIM > CLOSER RELATIONSHIP with Him.
  •  
  • Praying God’s Word demonstrates your FAITH in His Word.
  • Praying God’s Word = praying in accordance with HIS WILL.
  • Praying God’s Word releases HIS FIRE POWER: (a) “For our God is a CONSUMING FIRE” (Heb.12:29); (b)“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jer.23:29). So when we employ HIS WORD in PRAYER, HIS POWER can be RELEASED, for “Because you speak this word, Behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire,” (Jer.5:14).

If you want to increase the POWER of your prayers; if you want your prayers to be MOST EFFECTIVE, it will occur by PRAYING THROUGH SCRIPTURES.

Select SCRIPTURES that apply to whatever the situation is that you are praying into/for.

PERSONALIZE – whether praying them for yourself, or in intercession for someone else, for church/congregation, city, nation, etc.

PRINCIPLES – within Scripture are applicable to individual, household/family, or national situations – i.e., salvation prayed for Israel is equally applicable to individual family/household situation. 

INTERCESSION – when praying for others it becomes even more important to pray in accordance with God’s WILL, which means praying GOD’S WORD. The only sure way to avoid SOULISH PRAYERS  is by praying GOD’s WORD. SOULISH PRAYERS are prayers based on one’s own thoughts, desires, assumptions and/or expectations, and can therefore also be based on wrong motives. Soulish Prayers arise from having one’s own agenda, whether for the self or for the other, or on the other’s behalf. 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE – prayers of warfare must be based on Scriptural principles; therefore, it is of critical importance to pray in accordance with GOD’S WORD. SPECIAL NOTE: principles from OT where there is prayer against human enemies can be translated to apply to our ENEMY, SATAN, but certainly not against individual persons/humans, ”For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Eph.6:12,13). 

All prayer postings will be geared to demonstrate the above concepts/principles. I pray the Lord’s anointing on each one.
