PRAYING THE WORD

PRAYING THE WORD
THURSDAY 9
And this is the confidence that we have
in him,that, if we ask any thing
according to his will, he hear thus (1
John5:14).
God’s Word is His will expressed to us;
therefore, praying according to His will is
praying the Word.This is a very important
element in prayer that not so many understand and
practise: praying by the authority of the Word of God.
When we pray,it’s important that it’s on the basis of the
revelation and insight given to us by God through His
Word. We must act our faith in prayer, on the basis of
the Word of God;if God’s Word covers the subject,
then we’re audacious in faith to receive answers.
We read in our opening verse that when we
pray according to His will—His Word—He hears us. The
fifteenth verse says, “And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask,we know that we have the petitions
that we desired of him.”This means that when you pray
according to His will(His Word),He hears and answers
your prayer.
Some people,while praying,just talk, and don’t
care whether or not what they’re saying is in line with
the Word of God. Your prayers must be consistent
with the Word to be effective. Don’t just pray; pray
the Word.God already gave His Word, to show us
everything that He’s given to us,everything that He’s
made us,and every thing that we can do in Christ Jesus.
Thus,when you pray,until and unless your words
are in sync with His divine provisions in Christ,you’ll be
prayingam is. He’s revealed to us how to ask;how to
pray and what our requests can cover,so you can have
faith when you pray to Him. And your faith grows as
you learn the Word of God. The more of God’s Word
you know, the more faith you’ll have, and the more
accurate and effectual your prayers will be.
PRAYER
DearFather,I’m lifted byyourWord!I’m transfigured
andguidedbyyourtruth in the pathofyourdivine
and perfect will for my life. I walk in strength, health
and victory today, because I live by your Word, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
