An important part of praying is to pray scriptures. This is because praying scriptures brings assurance that we are praying according to God’s will.
“If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you” John 15:7
“If we ask anything according to his will he hears us” John 15:14
For example, the early church prayed according to scriptures, they quoted Psalm 2.
“ And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
When we pray God’s word with a pure heart he performs it because it is his perfect will.
“Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” Isaiah 5:11
Jereimah 1:12 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it”
Psalm 114: 15 “He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly. “
How do we pray God’s word? We apply a scripture for our particular situation and pray it to the Father in Jesus name.
