Why Pray The Word

The prayers of the Word in this series are to be used by you for yourself and for others. Deliberately feed them into your spirit. Allow the Holy Spirit to make the Word a reality in your heart. Your spirit will become quickened to God’s Word, and you will begin to think like God thinks and talk like He talks. You will find yourself poring over His Word – hungering for more and more. The Father rewards those who diligently seek Him. (Heb 11:6).

Meditate upon the Scriptures listed with these prayers. These are by no means the only Scriptures on certain subjects, but they are a beginning.

These prayers are to be a help and a guide to you in order for you to get better acquainted with your heavenly Father and His Word. Not only does His Word affect your life but also it will affect others through you, for you will be able to counsel accurately those who come to you for advice. If you cannot counsel someone with the word, you have nothing with which to counsel. Walk in God’s counsel, and prize His wisdom. (Ps 1; Prov. 4:7,8) When someone in need comes to you, you can point him to that portion in God’s Word that is the answer to his problem. You become victorious, trustworthy, and the one with the answer, for your heart is fixed and established on His Word. (Ps 112)

Once you begin delving into God’s Word, you must commit to ordering your conversation aright.. (Ps. 50:23) That is being a doer of the Word! You cannot pray effectively for yourself, for someone else, or about something and then talk negatively about the matter. (Matt 12:34-37) This is being double-minded, and a double-minded man receives nothing from God. (James 1:6-7)

In Ephesians 4:29-30 AMP it is written:

29Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it.

30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God [do not offend or vex or sadden Him], by Whom you were sealed (marked, branded as God’s own, secured) for the day of redemption (of final deliverance through Christ from evil and the consequences of sin).

Allow these words to sink into your innermost being. Our Father has much, so very much, to say about that little member, the tongue. (James 3) Give the devil an opportunity by getting into worry, unforgiveness, strife, and criticism. Put a stop to idle and foolish talking. (Eph 4:29;5:4) You are to be a blessing to others.

Talk the answer, not the problemThe answer is in God’s word. You must have knowledge of that word – revelation knowledge. (1 Cor 2:7-16)

As an intercessor, unite with others in prayer. United prayer is a mighty weapon that the Body of Christ is to use.

When you pray:

  • Believe that you received what you prayed for.
  • Confess the Word. Hold fast to your confession of faith, in God’s Word.
  • Allow your spirit to pray by the Holy Spirit.
  • Praise God for the victory now before any manifestation.
  • Walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Cor. 5:7)

Don’t be moved by adverse circumstances. As Satan attempts to challenge you, resist him; be steadfast in the faith – letting patience have her perfect work. (James 1:4) Take the sword of the Spirit and the shield of faith and quench his every fiery dart. (Eph 6:16,17) The entire substitutionary work of Christ was for you. Satan is now a defeated foe because Jesus conquered him. (Col 2:14,15) Satan is overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony. (Rev 12:11) Fight the good fight of faith. (1 Tim. 6:12).Withstand the adversary and be firm in faith against his onset – rooted, established, strong, and determined. (1 Pet 5:9) Speak God’s word boldly and courageously.

Your desire should be to please and to bless the Father. As you pray in line with His Word, He joyfully hears that you – His child – is living and walking in the truth. (3 John 4)

How exciting to know that the prayers of the saints are forever in the throne room. (Rev. 5:8) HALLELUJAH!!

Praise God for His Word, and the unlimited prayers we can have in the name of Jesus. It belongs to every child of God. Therefore, run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. (Heb 12:1,2) God’s Word is able to build you up and give you your rightful inheritance among all whom God set apart. (Acts 20:32).

Commit yourself to pray and to pray correctly by approaching the throne with your mouth filled with His Word!
