In addition to reading the bible, prayer is vital to a thriving relationship with God. Specifically, when we pray according to scripture, we are praying in agreement with what God says about us!
Nothing has impacted or changed my prayer life more than when I started writing out my own scripture-based prayers. Years ago I started looking for promises in the Word of God, and would write them down on notecards, and put them around my house, car, or wherever I could see them throughout the day. It was so life-changing, that I have continued to do so every day since.
Whatever season we may be in, or whatever difficulties we may be facing, God's Word has an answer, and a promise to guide and direct us. When we agree and focus our attention on His faithfulness, we can walk in wisdom, peace, and faith!
I encourage you to ask the Lord to show you scriptures that He has specifically for you and your family; But I hope these scriptures that I have turned into prayers helps get you started! I pray you are encouraged today by these prayers, and that the awesome Word of God reminds you who are in Christ, and the overcoming victory that you can have in Him!
