Prayer Promises From God’s Word
By Bishop O.W.Prince
When we pray, let our prayers be in accordance with the promises of God. Attend to His words; incline thine ear unto His sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. “For they are life unto those that find them, and health (Medicine) to all their flesh.” (Proverb 4:20-22) God’s Word has life in it. It is spiritual food. As you feed on it, you will become strong spiritually and physically. Read the Word, meditate on the Word, and take God’s medicine daily. God’s Words have power in them. The Word is God and through Him all things were made and in Him is life (John1:1-4). When you keep God’s Word in the midst of your heart, it will begin to flow out of your mouth and become life and healing to your flesh. For out of the mouth flow the contents of the heart (Matthew 12:33-37). Speak the Truth! Speak the promises!! Speak the Word!!!

“A Sample Prayer”
Key Thought: Praying the promises of God.
Key Scripture: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joint and marrow, and is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
Prayer: Thank you for your Word, Father. It is a light unto my path and a lamp unto my feet. Teach me to study your Word so that I can show myself approved unto you, a workman who never needs to be ashamed because I have learned to divide your Word rightly. I will search the Scriptures daily to discover your truth and direction.
Your Word will not depart out of my mouth, Lord Jesus. I will meditate upon it day and night so I will learn to walk in your Word daily. When this becomes a reality in my life, Lord, you will make my way prosperous and fill my life with success. Thank you for this promise which so encourages me.
You have performed your Word over and over again, Lord Jesus. You have confirmed it so many times in my life. May your Word always be with me as I learn to hide it in my heart so I will not sin against you. Help me to use your Word as the sword of the Spirit, the weapon through which I will always be able to stay the hand of the enemy.
My Lord and my God, your way is perfect and your Word is true; you are a mighty buckler to all who trust in you. It is your precious Word that brings faith to my heart and gives me the ability to trust you. Speak to me through the pages of the Holy Scriptures and through Your Holy Spirit and strengthen my faith.
Your wonderful Word makes me wise unto salvation. It assure me of being saved from Hell and damnation through repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as evidenced through the speaking in tongues. Your Word calls me to die to sin. A watery burial in your name confirms and validates my death. The Holy Spirit breathes life into the new creature in Christ Jesus and speaks in a new tongue. Baptism in your name cleanses me from sin. The Holy Spirit sustains me and will not return unto you void. It will accomplish all that you purpose in my life. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your plan of salvation. Thank you for saving me.
Your Word gives me life because you are the Word and the Life. As I hold forth your Word, help me to rejoice in the day of Christ, knowing that my labor is not in vain, for you reward those who diligently seek you. I want to be more like you, Lord Jesus. I want to become a doer of your Word and not just a hearer. By keeping your Word, your love is made perfect in me. Give me the grace, Lord Jesus, to be both a doer and a keeper of your Word.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
