PRAYING SCRIPTURE 

WHY PRAY SCRIPTURE?  If we told you that with just one change, your prayers could be more powerful, more impactful and more effective than ever before, would you do it? Something like that must be hard, right? The answer is no! It isn’t difficult!
 
Hebrews 4:12 says that God’s Word is alive and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword! Ladies, if we want to see our prayers become more powerful and more effective, than a sure fire way to do that is with praying scripture!  When we pray the scriptures, when we speak God’s word, we are coming into agreement with the living God and then.. and this is where it gets good… we come into agreement and then his mighty power is released to answer our prayers! WOW! Can I get an amen??? Can that be for real? It is!
 
You see, when the words of God start living in us, it begins to form the will of God in our very souls, in our thoughts and the way we see things and in the way we pray! When we begin using God’s living word in our prayer time, our prayers can become absolutely explosive! I mean powerfully explosive, because God’s word is powerful and effective! 
 
 So what does it even mean to “pray scripture”? It’s very simple. It’s all about being in the word of God, knowing the word, and speaking it.
 
If you do not have a regular time of studying God’s word, you are missing out on a huge blessing! And something that can transform your prayer time. It is a powerful tool. There are many good books on this issue- to find out more, check out Stormy Omartian’s books on prayer or Beth Moore’s, Praying God’s Word.
 
Here’s what it looks like:
 
Say your friend is struggling with some major difficulties. At some point our words run out. But here is how you take a simple scripture and pray it for her.
 
Isaiah 46:4 says, “I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” 
 
When you know this verse, you can pray it for your friend. Use God’s own words back to him.  It would read something like this:  “Lord,  thank you that you made Amy and I know you will carry her. You will sustain Amy and you will rescue Amy”.
 
Again, 2 Cor. 12:9 says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  
 
To pray this for someone you would simply insert names. It would read something like: “Father, I know your grace is sufficient for Rick, your power is made perfect in Rick’s weakness.”
 
God hears these things ladies! And HE ANSWERS!
 
Our prayer for you who read this is based on 1 Cor. 2:9-
“No eye has seen,no ear has heard, no mind has conceived the things that God has prepared for YOU!”
