Praying the Scriptures
Personalized Prayers from Scripture:
Personalizing scripture and repeating them back to God can be very effective. As you pray God’s Word back to Him, He is pleased, for He has told us to put Him in remembrance of His Word. Do you think He needs to be reminded? Like He forgot?
No, we are the ones who need to be reminded. We claim these awesome promises for ourselves. Pray these prayers from your heart several times today. You will be richly blessed in doing so.
I praise you Lord from my soul. From my inmost being I praise your Holy name. I praise you Lord from my soul. I will not forget all your benefits – you forgive all my sins and heal all my diseases. You redeemed my life from the pit and crowned me with your love and compassion. You satisfy my desires with good things so that my youth is renewed like an eagle’s. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
No weapon forged against me will prevail and I will refute every tongue that accuses me. This is my heritage as a servant of the Lord, and this is my vindication from you. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
This also is my prayer: that my love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that I may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of you, God. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
Ask the Holy Spirit to bring to your mind a favorite scripture of yours. Personalize it for yourself.
