Praying the Word of God
I have found, that when we get strategic and pull out the word of the Father, and pray that over our different situations that we face, then that, will supernaturally, help us to remove the many different maybe, negative emotions, we may have about xyz.
And you see, it’s all those different negative emotions, in truth, that can possibly prevent the effectiveness of our prayers from going forth and accomplishing.
So, what I’ve found, is that, when I pull out the word of God, concerning those many different situations and pray the word, that I then, enter into a realm of praying the Father’s thoughts and will vs. mine. And we know, when we pray His will, that produces results. For the Father, has told us, His ways and thoughts are higher than ours.
Isaiah 55:9-11“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
If you’re like me, there have been many times, where I desired to pray about XYZ but because of my own emotional attachment to it etc. I felt like, I didn’t even know, what to pray. Therefore, I stayed stuck, left to deal with the same stuff and weighed down.
But praise be unto the Father! I have seen VICTORY when I allow His word and thoughts to replace mine.
In truth, sometimes, the words we pray, out of our good intentions, just aren’t enough, to see a Heavenly, supernatural impact. Thus, the critical need, to pray the word of God.-sepia gladden
Romans 8:26-27 AMP reads: In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groaning’s too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will.
You see, the more and more, I grow in the Father, the more and more, I see, when I am not praying His word, my weakness and inability to really pray, in a way, that really hits the target. Now though, I know, Romans 8:26-27 is a scripture, that’s often, been used to point out our need to pray in the Spirit being, in tongues, in which, I do believe in yet, I too, believe this is scripture is just as true, concerning to pray His very word.
For the word of God, tells us in John 6:63: It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Now how can we apply praying the word of God?
Let me do share, some of the things, I have done, as a way to do so. Whebever, I read through the word, being the Bible, and the Father allows scriptures to leap off the page and minister to me in one way or another, one thing, I’m becoming more and more diligent to do, is to write them down on flashcards. Such, when I pray, concerning certain things, I can pray, the word of the Father, because in praying His word, that transcends, my emotions and also, causes there to be again a supernatural impact, that I DO see in the natural realm, one that, not only concerns the situations, but also concerning me.
Now granted, I know, that in order to soak in the word, write the word and to pray it, it is a sacrifice, but in doing so, the gemstones, from the Father’s heart is released and the empowerment to intercede is given.
Hebrews 4:12 reads: For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Another, effective thing I’ve seen work is that, I also, read books written by authors who pray the word, and so, in praying what’s in the book, it’s not only, helped me to pray, but how to pray in more specific ways concerning other areas in my life.
I personally have used books written by the author Stormie Omartian and Elizabeth George. I too, have used their books to pray for me, my children and husband.
1 John 5:14-15 reads: Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
I look forward to hearing about all the praise reports, we each, will have in intentionally, praying and storing the Father’s word in us.
Here, is a picture below, of just a few flash cards, I have made over the years, with the intention to store it in my heart, apply and pray them.
