For the longest time, I have felt that God is moving in my heart me to write prayers. Finally I decided to listen and obey and sat down and started. These are prayers that I pray over myself. This is how I pray. I pray the Word over me and my girls and loved ones and friends (and whoever I am lead to pray for). I really believe that we should Pray the Word for 2 big reasons:
- God is watching over His word to perform it. (Jer 1:12 & Isa 55:11)
- Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)
When I pray these prayers, I don’t necessarily feel like it. I don’t feel strong and brave and courageous and full of faith and joyful. That’s why I pray! But I believe that God Words has the ability to change and shape our thinking and believing which will lead to a change in our circumstances. One day I was feeling low and I cried out to God to help me out of this hole. Immediately I almost audibly heard God’s answer in my heart: Dig yourself out of the hole. I knew exactly what that meant in that moment: I have to open my mouth and SPEAK the Word out loud. I did that and immediately I was standing on solid rock.
I want to challenge you to pray with me. I will add prayers here as often as I can and every prayer will have a specific topic. With each prayer, I will also include a PDF for you that you can download and print.
Let’s pray God Word!
