Nothing has impacted or changed my life more than when I began to renew my mind with the promises found in the word of God....But the amazing thing is, it doesn't stop there! 2 Timothy tells us that all scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right!
Another powerful lesson God taught me in applying His word to my life was when I began to write pray scriptures out loud.
The bible refers to God's promises as a double edged sword, and Ephesians 6:17 tells us that we are to take up the sword of the Spirit, so we know that it is a powerful weapon in the armor of God that we must take action and use!
I started doing this years ago, and it was so life-changing, that I have continued to do it ever since! Whatever season we may be in, or whatever difficulties we may be facing, God's Word has an answer, a promise, and and way out! When we agree and focus our attention on these promises, we can and will overcome anything that comes our way!
I wrote these prayers using scriptures from the Word of God that relate to different emotional battles that we all may go through in life. There is no ‘magic’ formula to praying these prayers. In fact, the way to develop a powerful, effective prayer life is by simply spending time with the Lord every day, which can and should include praying from your heart...but I hope that these scripture based prayers provide a foundation for you to write your own, as you take God at His word, and begin to trust Him in every area of your life!
I would also encourage you to ask the Lord to show you scriptures that He has specifically for you...But I hope this 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!
Feel free to print these scripture-based prayers out for yourself! You could also write them down on notecards, in a journal, or share them with friends/family!
