PRAYER: SCRIPTURAL INSTRUCTIONS # 2
Ruth Shinness-Brinduse Prayer Strategy Resource Book Page 4-5
SCRIPTURES PRAYER STRATEGY RECOURCE BOOK IS BASED ON
SAYING THE WORD OF GOD
Isaiah 55:10-11 NIV As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return void, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
WHAT MEDITATING ON GOD'S WORD DOES
The Word of God is active and alive
It will go forth out of my mouth
It will accomplish what God desires for me
Above what I could think or ask. Grin!
GOD'S WORD SAYS
Meditate day and night
So one drop of rain or one snowflake
Does not do the job?
CHUCK COLSON, PRISON FELLOWSHIP
Our subconscious formatted in the negatives
From the past
You will never succeed
Nothing good will happen to you
PRISIONERS ACCEPT THE LORD
But fail because subconscious formatting
MEDITATING ON GOD WORD DAY AND NIGHT
Washes the subconscious of the negatives
Replacing it with the positives
Now the positives
Draws their success to them
Isaiah 62:6 AMP I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence, and give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU REMIND GOD OF PROMISES?
Day and night, keep not silent
Give God no rest
Until God establishes the promise
Mark 11:23 KJV Whosoever shall say to this mountain be thou removed and cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he says.
RUTH PROBLEM WITH BELIEVING?
Times past try to work up believing
Did not feel any faith rise up in my heart
BELIEVING PROBLEM SOLVED
Prayer Book is all scripture
I already believe all the promises are mine
So the believing part is settled
WHAT IS THERE LEFT TO DO?
Say it with my mouth
Just like my salvation
"Believe in my heart, say it with my mouth"
KEEP ON SAYING IT
Hebrews 10:23 KJV Let us hold fast to our confession of faith without wavering; for he is faithful who promised. Keep on saying it.
Proverbs 18:21 KJV Death and life are in the power of the tongue.
The choice is ours
To say the words of life
Or to say the words of death.
BELIEVE IN THE NOW
Mark 11:24 KJV What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.
THE KEY THAT OPENED FLOW FROM HEAVEN
When I took the scriptures I had been praying
Paraphrased them to say
"Thank you, Lord, I NOW have what the Word says".
THEN JESUS OPENED DOORS FOR ME
Activated His Word
Sending me out to minister
I go along for the ride
It is He that does the work
