Praying the Scriptures

Finding the Power of Prayer in the Word

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

When we read the scriptures, they can become alive as our hearts are open to the Holy Spirit.  They are a guide for our lives and a foundation of God’s intents and purposes.  We can also find prayers settled in the pages for us to pray with power, such as Ephesians 3: 16-19.  I’ve changed the text to make it personal and  in first person below:

Ephesians !!

Can you see how awesome and powerful the word of God is when we pray it with the cry that can come from our own hearts?

Search the Bible for verses to make it your own and you will realize how powerful and anointed the prayers can be for you.  Practice and pray.
