Keep your prayers Biblical

6

One of the most effective ways of praying is to use  a Bible verse to pray and claim God’s promises for you.  You should pray Scripture because God’s people in the OT and NT did, Jesus did. You should pray Scripture because it helps you pray confidently. You should pray Scripture because it keeps your prayers Biblical .

.

Contrary to what many believe, the Bible doesn’t encourage long prayers. Instead, the effectiveness of one’s prayers is emphasized. An effective prayer life indicates we are praying for the things that we know God wants us to pray for.  Let His Word dwell richly within us –  meditate on the Word day and night so that we will be careful to live accordingly and thereby have prosperity and success.   His Word will live on forever– even though everything in our own earthly lives will eventually perish.  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Proverbs 30:5

Selah.5    I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.  6    I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. 7    Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8    Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people.

Jonah 2: 2    And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. 3    For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me. 4    Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 5    The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6    I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7    When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple. 8    They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9    But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
