Do You Pray the Scriptures?

Photo by Mona

The scriptures are God's Word for us. The scriptures have power and can speak into our lives and into our situations. Have your ever prayed the scriptures?

Take a verse and read it - it is good! Take a verse, make it personal and pray it - it changes your life.

Psalm 107:28 goes from "Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble and He brings them out of their distresses" to your prayer: "I will cry to the Lord in trouble and He brings me out of my distresses".

Psalm 91:1 goes from "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the almighty" to your prayer: "I will dwell in the secret place of the most High. I shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the almighty."

Feel the difference? Feel how it reaches into your heart and helps you to believe? Feel how you have strength when you confess God's Word! Ah, you too, can soar!
