Declare it in Jesus' name
CHILD LIKE FAITH
THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS
I believe as I am writing this it will help someone in their prayer life with God. Being a Christian, prayer is so vitally important for us to get further in life. Sometimes young believers don't know what to say or how to say it so that their prayers are answered.
Well the best answer I can give is when you pray the word of God, you will see results. Our 100 words or 10,000 words (from our mind) won't get God to move on our behalf unless we use the word of God in those prayers. Prayer is powerful when used effectively, especially when brothers and sisters in Christ pray for one another. If you have been praying and you want you prayers answered, pray for someone who you know needs intervention. Remember God already knows your needs, your desires, your strengths, your weaknesses, etc.
I learned this from trial and error. If I need a better job/career and I want God to lead me with that choice I would pray for someone else that needs the same thing but first I would put them on the forefront and then add my needs on the back end of the prayer. Lifting up someone else needs over your own is how it works best. Unconditional Love is what God likes to see and hear. It's music to HIS ears. It's what He is desiring to hear more of from you, each and everyone of us. It's a prayer that will be answered and it's a breakthrough in the works.
Here is a sample prayer that one could use as a model and enhance or shorten to your preference. In prayer there is no set time your prayer has to be (some may say this is very long, and even some may say it's not long enough) nevertheless when you are led by the Holy Spirit you will know when it's time to start and stop.
Note you could have worship music playing softly in the background or nothing but silence but you will want to silence you cell phone and make sure you have the time to give God some time and room in your life.
Here we go...........
NOTE - (not just me) - means one person and their family or you and the body of Christ,
Father in Heaven, you are worthy to be praised, in Psalm 113:2, we read, "Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore", ....I pray that your Kingdom will be manifested more and more on earth so that many others will come and see and experience the goodness of you. Even as a mustard seed, it may look small to some now but in time it will be the best and greatest change they've made in their life ever. By faith I thank you.
Father you are our God, our help in time of need but right now I want to thank you for your goodness and mercy and favor that you have on (not just me) and that their family and job/career situation is doing well and that all their needs and concerns are met according to your Perfect Will. If if we don't have a job I thank you that you have prepared us the perfect place for us and that we are coming to the complete knowledge to where it is and we know we have favor right now at this place. Thank you for inspiring (not just me) with wisdom, insight, concepts and ideas on how we can further the Kingdom and be financially free all around the world and back again, thank you for blessing us with flawless direction so that what you have prepared for us will be received and not delayed by any distraction in Jesus name. As (not just you) lift up their needs and concerns to you, I am in agreement with their prayers and thank you for hearing and answering their prayers.
Psalm 138:8 says that you will perfect that which concerns me and they (not just me) are my concern at the moment, Thank you for protecting them as in Psalm 23:4 that even though we walk through valley of the shadow of death, they fear no evil, because you are with them, and in Psalm 91:3 that you will deliver them from the snares set by the enemy, and (Psalm 91:1-16) that they are protected from every evil of every kind, also in Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise up against you in judgment shall be condemned, (they will be found to be in the wrong) this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and for our righteousness is of the Lord", yes it is you who has declared us righteous, not us. Your word and I'm in agreement with it. I AM AFFIRMING YOUR WORD AS FINAL AUTHORITY.
Thank you for giving (not just me) their daily bread, Psalm 37:25 says I have been young and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Thank you for blessing (not just me) spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, financially and socially so all that we do will be successful. We thank you for reminding us that it is you who give us the power to get wealth as it says in Deuteronomy 8:18.
Father, as it says in Psalm 52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever",
.........((((OK- this is when you pray for your needs in the same way you prayed for you and the body of Christ)))........
Father I personally ask that you forgive me for the sins I have committed against you as I now forgive those who have wronged me. If there is anyone I need to forgive please bring them to my mind so that I can let go and let you finish what you started in me.
(wait to see if there is anyone the Holy Spirit brings anyone to mind)
And I thank you father that you have redeemed us from the curse of the Law as it states in Galatians 3:13, poverty, sickness is under the curse and thank you for updating us with your Perfect plan so we can and will follow you as in John 10:3-4 and John 16:13 knowing what to do with your guidance. Increase is apart of our inheritance as a believer, so we thank you for helping us and enlightening us when we don't have understanding or knowledge about this truth. Help us to see your Glory in our lives. Help us to live and expect to dwell in the overflow of your goodness and abundance. Thank you for helping us to just trust in you as in Philippians 4:19 we focus on the truth that "there is no lack, for my God shall supply all need according to his riches by Christ Jesus" it's by your riches not ours, yours Father. Nothing is too hard for you, as it says in Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing shall be impossible", no promise that you made to us all is not too hard, for you are not a man that you would lie, you can't lie, and I thank you that I can now trust in that word if I didn't before.
Father we know that our enemy is a thief and as it says in John 10:10 "The thief comes not but for to steal, kill and destroy......and we know and thank you for rehearsing this truth that your word reminds us - that .....you have come that we will have life and have life MORE abundantly.YES TO HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY!
(Help us to know what that means completely in every way in every detail in every facet of our lives).
I believe the promises, I receive the promises, I take those promises, I use my faith that I have those promises now active in our life right now, I am grateful for your promises, I forgive any person that I have held in the back of my mind, they are forgiven now, I release them now, I forgive them. I have faith in your word. Yes I have faith in your word. I have faith in you. There are no God made failures, I was created in HIS image, I was created in HIS likeness so I am not a failure, on the contrary, I am blessed to be a blessing as I expect and you expect me to be in Jesus name Amen.
So be it.
NOW YOU MAY WANT TO THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE, (BY FAITH) THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE IS DOING NOW AND WHAT HE WILL DO IN THE FUTURE..........THANK HIM FOR WHO HE IS........GLORY TO GOD.
PRAISE, WORSHIP, READ OUT LOUD OF WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THE BIBLE.
THIS FEEDS YOUR FAITH. THIS FUELS YOUR FAITH.
REMEMBER GOD DESIRES US TO USE OUR FAITH.

MAKE GOD YOUR TREASURE By BERNARD LEVINE
When you love God’s animals
showing kindness and care
God feels your warmth and adoration.
When you reach out
to help someone who is hurting
God applauds gratefully.
When you praise God
with sincerity and deep devotion
the purity of your love
blesses God’s heart.
Every word spoken
with respect and honour
becomes a garden of fragrance and beauty.
All the love you give to God
brings reward of blessings beyond measure.
Take time everyday
to make God your treasure
and love Him so deeply
God is everything you need.

PRAYER By BERNARD LEVINE
There is no greater joy
than loving God in prayer
There are no riches more rewarding
than the eternal treasures you'll receive
Prayer brings powerful help into your life
Prayer changes circumstances
What a wonderful privilege we have
to give our heart to our Father in prayer.

Dave Thank you for your comment again. Prayer is power over everything when one knows how to pray effectively. Not saying you don't, I'm sure you do. Again I agree God hears all prayers.
In the past I thought I did and yes God heard them, every single one of them but it took other people's prayer mixed with my own to get mine answered. The reason for that was those blessed children of God who took out time for me, to say spirit filled prayers for me knew how to pray and back then I did not at all. It was only when I started mixing the word of God with my prayers and gave my life over to Christ and became a child of God myself did I see things change.
Reading Proverbs 15:29, James 5:16 and I Peter 3:12 shows that God does have some requirements for answering prayers. By faith in HIS word, what HE has already said about our many situations HE'S got an answer for our every problem. And isn't it just the same, we have a problem for his every answer. God is SO GOOD!
Be blessed brother Dave, my brother in Christ.

Lady_E That's absolutely right, Spiritual strength these days is what people are looking for and we can get that and stay in that as we pray and believe that we receive and read the written word, renewing our mind.
I believe I am being used to remind myself when I write hubs on these topics. My prayer is that as I am led to write these hubs that it encourages others but it also encourages me the writer. Everyone needs that. I know I do. You're welcome my sister in Christ. Be Blessed.
Elena from London, UK on January 23, 2011:
Very inspiring. We don't just need physical strength these days, we need spiritual strength for the inner man too. Thanks.

Thank you gingerka for your comment. You are welcome. I thank God for giving me the nudge spiritually to write this. It's good to know that you share the same vision. God's vision.
Indeed Jesus Christ is the head of the church and we are the body and God needs every part to do their part. Whatever the head does we have to follow. The head is blessed so the body is blessed. If the toe hurts everyone is effected in some way.
I believe continuous prayer for the whole body is better than just praying for the toe or the finger, indeed we as the whole we need each other.....literally! As you know.
Thank you again for your comment.
Be blessed my sister in Christ.
gingerka from Colorado on January 22, 2011:
Prayer is very powerful in this way. I thank you for encouraging us all to pray more, and for praying for the body of Christ.
