PRAYING RIGHT: Learning to Pray the Word

Why is it important to pray the Word of God. The answer to that can be clearly found in 1 John 5:14. I have written an article about that in the past, so today, I will be writing on the steps You need to take to
effectively pray the Word of God in your life.

Jesus said in John 15:7 that if we abide in Him, and His Words in us, whatever we ask shall be done for us. This is one of the many amazing promises we can find printed on the pages of the Holy Bible.

Praying the Word of God means reading Scripture verses in a spirit of prayer and letting the meaning of the verses become a prayer for us, and inspire our thoughts.

There are a lot of ways to do this. You could do this alone or with others. Remember that when two or three are gathered in His Name, He is always there (Matthew 18:20).

Here is how I pray the Word of God:

1. I find a quiet time and place.

2. I begin with a brief prayer like:

"Heavenly Father, I seek You today that I may find You. I ask You to open my mouth to make my request known to You, and open my heart to completely believe that what I ask for, I shall receive."

This is mine; yours can be different.

3. Read a Scripture verse at random, or with the help of a guide.

4. Shape your prayer from the Scripture verse. Read every word and make a meaning out of it. You could ask God to open your understanding to get the deepest meaning of every Word.

5. If you find difficulties understanding anything along the way, make a research and find what others have written based on that very Scripture verse.

6. When you read every sentence, ask yourself this question:

"If this were to be a prayer about my life, what would it be like?"

Construct a prayer from it based on your situation. Relate the verse to your life.

I have been praying the Word of God since June 15, and it has been an amazing journey all through with lots of blessing.
