Prayer based on the Word of the Lord works. That is why it’s important to base your prayer on the Word of God. Just because we may want something and therefore pray about it, doesn’t mean God is entitled to provide it.
God watches over His Word to perform it. The key is that it has to be His words not our words. It’s important for us to open the Bible and to find out what belongs to us in Christ. We must discover His will which is His Word. The Holy Spirit is there to help us to just that.
Pray In Alignment With The Bible
When we line up our prayers with God’s promises, we can be rest assured that He will get to work on what we lift up to Him. Even Jesus prayed and that speaks volumes to us. If it was important for the Lord to pray to the Father, then how much more is it a priority we should have in our life.
One of the most popular types of prayers in the Bible is the prayer of agreement. We discover all about this in Matthew 18 and we can see from the Scripture that if two people agree as touching anything that they ask then it will be done by the Father. For where two or three are gathered together in the Name of Jesus, there He is in their midst.
That is powerful!
There is power when two people align their prayers. Agreement based on the Word between Believers brings amazing results in prayer. God already watches over His Word to perform it so when we pray based on what He already said He is already in agreement and will perform what has been lifted up to Him.
Yes, He will supply all needs according to His riches and glory. It may be hard to believe but God promises that anything you ask shall be done.
The switch that keeps the blessings flowing in your life is your belief in Him. Without faith it is impossible to please Him so you must believe before you see the answer to your prayers. God is always interested in spending time with you. Always run to Him, not from Him.
There is never anything you could possibly ask Him that is too small or too big. He has the capability to perform whatever we can believe Him for and that is promised in His Word.
Stand On God’s Word
When two or more Christians come together to agree it means that their hearts are harmonized. When two people come together they are both playing a part in the results of the prayer. The prayer of agreement will only work as long as both parties agree and believe God and neither doubt.
Agreement in Christian prayer is far more important than just a quick glance. Believing God’s Word and standing on God’s Word, in agreement, is spiritual warfare.
The battle really does come down to what we allow to occur in our minds. Prayer is won or lost in the mind. Even though initially, agreement was there, it is important for both people who prayed to continue to believe and cast down anything that would say their prayer was not answered.
Jesus said to believe that you receive when you pray. The moment the prayer is complete, that is the time to take a big mental stand and refuse to doubt. Take the time to renew your mind by the Bible and with the help of the Holy Spirit, you can control your mental state.
It is critically important not to pray in one direction yet act or speak in the opposite direction. It will sink your prayer faster than you may realize. Read the Bible and meditate on the promises you are believing for. Be patient and over time those promises will deeply root in your heart.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, so don’t move out of your place of faith.
Run to God’s Word and open up the Scriptures. Find out what He promised and believe Him for those things in your life. Pray in alignment with those promises. God is faithful and won’t let you down.
