The Power of Praying the Word

by | Oct 15, 2008 | Prayer

praybibleThe Master Creator, the God of the universe, wants to walk with you and
talk with you.

He has given you a language that is creative and powerful enough
to open the heavens and release His glory, His majesty. Nothing that occurs on
your journey through life comes as a surprise to your heavenly Father. He uses
everything to complete His work that He has begun in you. You are His
masterpiece!

God sent the Holy Spirit to you. He not only walks with you, but He
also abides in you. When you have done all you know to do and feel like giving
up, the Holy Spirit is present to strengthen you. When your faith seems
exhausted, He activates the faith of the Son of God that abides in you. He lifts
you up. He leads you into a place of rest and peace that passes understanding.
He never leaves you without support. He gives you the courage to approach a holy
God who is present to hear you when you pray.

How can you know God’s will? His Word is His will, and if His Word abides
in you and you abide in Him, you can ask what you desire and it shall be done
for you. (See John 15:7.)

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything
according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we
ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
—1 John 5:14–15

When your enemy would have you believe that you are insignificant, the Word
of God is powerful enough to expose misbeliefs about who you are. Your life is
significant, you are chosen by God to be His very own, and you are the
righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Depression, self-pity, and fear lie to
you, but God gives you the courage to overcome. The Word of God is hope, the
Word of God is health, and the Word of God assures you that the sun will rise
again.

The Word of God is not just words written on a page or a history book. His
Word is so powerful and creative that the universe with its planets, sun, moon,
and stars was framed by it. The Word of God is creative and is still creating
today.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so
that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
—Hebrews 11:3
