The Power of Praying Scripture
For the last couple of weeks, we have been talking about praying through Scripture to help focus our prayers and have specifically been using the book of Ephesians. If you remember, before we began, we looked at three great truths regarding using God’s Word to focus our prayers. They are:
One, there is a direct connection between the degree that Scripture shapes our minds and the degree to which our prayers are answered.
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” – John 15:7.
Two, God only answers the prayers and petitions that His Son had some part in asking.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him – 1 John 5:14-15.
And three, the early church prayed Scripture. And so should we.
But today, we want to focus on some doctrines we found in just the first chapter of Ephesians. It is on these doctrines we have been focusing our prayers.
Praying Through Doctrines
Some truths we have been praying through are:
1. God’s Calling
3. Grace and Peace
4. Blessed is our God
5. Complete in Him
6. Being “in Christ” and all that means
12. Sovereignty of God
14. Our Acceptance
16. Substitutionary Atonement of Christ
17. Forgiveness of Sins
18. Grace in Abundance / Riches of His Grace
19. Wisdom and Prudence of God
21. The Church
22. Eternal Security / Sealed
23. Holy Spirit
24. How to Pray / What to Pray For
26. The Knowledge of God
27. Effectual Calling
28. Eternal Life / Our Final State
I hope you can see the importance of using Scripture to focus your prayers, especially as we see dark times approaching. To find out more about how this is done and how to become a faith prepper, keep listening.
