Have you found yourself floundering a bit and need the soothing words of God to go down deep into your spirit and give you the shot of encouragement you need to keep going? Maybe you have tried to pray but came up dry? Perhaps you have heard about praying scripture but just wasn’t sure what that meant?
Yeah, me too. If we are honest I think we have all visited that place a time or two. When I have found myself at that point, I grab my Bible and turn a few verses into personal prayers and pray God’s Word back to him.
Life is full of ups and downs, trials and tribulations. We can’t change that. But when we are faced with those issues that try to bring us down, there isn’t anything more powerful in our spiritual warfare than God’s sword of truth.
Pray with Your Sword of Truth
In a personal way, sweet Jesus has shown me that he listens intently to every prayer we pray. He doesn’t care if it is plain words or fancy speak; Jesus loves to hear it all.
When prayed according to God’s will, he responds to every prayer uttered. How do you make sure you are praying in God’s will? By praying his very own words back to him.
Prayer Is An Act Of Faith
When we pray we are showing with our words and actions where we are placing our hope and trust. We are telling God that we need him, not what he could or should do for us, but HIM. We are extending faith (after all, there isn’t any physical evidence that anyone is listening or that anything will happen). Prayer is an extremely powerful act of faith.
