|God taught me the importance of praying scriptures a long time ago. To apply His words to our life will bring dead things to life and line our thoughts up with His thoughts. This one thing holds so much power! It’s pretty simple, when I’m struggling with something, I search the scriptures for answers and I pray. Then by the leading of the Holy Spirit, I write out a prayer that goes with the scriptures so that when I pray I’ll be praying God’s Word over that specific thing. Then sometimes a passage of scripture will speak to me and I know that applying it to my life would make needed changes so I do the same thing. Isaiah 55:11 says that God’s Word will not come back void but that it will accomplish what it set out to do! Feel free to print and use the prayers I have written and use them! Don’t give up until you’ve prayed God’s Word over it!|
Adapted from 1 Thessalonians 5
Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you today with a humble heart. I’m so thankful that you shared Your word with us. It is a light unto my path and life to my bones. I will hide it’s truth in my heart so that I will not sin against You. I pray, that I will not be like others, who are asleep, but that I will be awake and sober until the day of Your return. I will put on faith and love as a breastplate and the hope of salvation as a helmet. I acknowledge those who work hard, who care for me in the Lord and who encourage me. I speak life and blessings over them and hold them in the highest regard. As I work hard to live in peace with others, I will warn those who are disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak and be patient with everyone. I will not pay back wrong for wrong, but will strive to do what is good for everyone. I will rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances because this is Your will for me in Christ Jesus. I pray, Lord, that You will sanctify my entire being so that I will be kept blameless until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. You who calls me is faithful and you will do it!
Praise the Lord! Amen!!
