The role of prayer and intercession cannot be overstated. Prayer is the hook which keeps you anchored to the promises of God. Prayer is you reminding God, not that He forgets anything; the remembrance is more for us. See what the Bible says, “Let us review the situation together, and you can present your case to prove your innocence.” read Isaiah 43:26 (NLT). Watch this, in prayer, we use the Word of God and His promise to review the situation, and on the basis of the Word review, you can declare yourself innocent because the Blood of Jesus has made and set you free. Hallelujah… Brothers and sisters, this is another way to honour God’s Word above all else.
“Prayer is not a convenient device for imposing our will upon God, or bending His will to ours, but the prescribed way of subordinating our will to His.” John Stott. Can you see this? When your will is subordinate to His will through prayer,
“Prayer, in many ways, is the supreme expression of our faith in God.” Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
“He that knows how to overcome the Lord in prayer, has heaven and earth at his disposal.” Charles Spurgeon.
“In our prayers, we talk to God, in our Bible study, God talks to us, and we had better let God do most of the talking.” Dwight L. Moody. In other words, calling for Bible study renewal.
Prayer is an honourable endeavour, and the Lord will put His Words in your mouth if you will open it. Praying His Word is honouring Him.
We write. You read. Be encouraged.
