Prayer is the greatest wonder-working force on planet earth. Today, we will learn one more tool you need for a prevailing prayer life.
The fifth tool you need for a life of effective and prevailing prayer is the word of God. As a believer, God’s word has an essential role to play in all aspects of your prayer life. Prayer and the word of God are interrelated. The God who hears prayer is the God of the Bible. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the word and prayer. So, it is very important to arm and equip yourself with the word of God in the place of prayer so as to get the best result. The truth is that the strength of your communion with God depends on how richly His word dwells in you. Your praise, worship and prayer must be word-based to yield the best dividend.
The major reason for weak prayer lives is a neglect of God’s word. Therefore, if you want your prayer life to be strong, effective and prevailing, you must constantly feed on the word of God and quote it relevantly when you pray. Jesus quoted the Scriptures on several occasions. In Matthew 27:46, He quoted from Psalm 22:1; in John 15:25, He quoted from Psalm 35:19 and Psalm 69:4; in John 13:18, He quoted from Psalm 41:9 and in Matthew 23:39 from Psalm 118:20. He also quoted from Deuteronomy 8:3 and defeated the tempter by pointing to the important role of the word.
Our Royal Master, Jesus Christ, further underscored the essential role of the word of God in believers prayer in John 15:7. He said, “If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” This Scripture shows that getting answers to your prayer is closely related to living in God’s word. The Bible buttressed this point when it says in the Psalms that angels of the LORD excel in strength, do His commandments and hearken to the voice of His word (Psalm 103:20).
Beloved, I counsel you to massively incorporate God’s word into your spiritual life. You will have the spiritual power to prevail in prayer and spiritual warfare.

PRAYER OF SALVATION

I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
