Why We Pray the Word of God

By angeline williams

God commanded saying “…these words, which I command thee this day, shall be upon thy heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).

Christian spiritual growth depends upon knowing God’s Word. “…as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk which is without guile, that ye may grow thereby unto salvation” (I Peter 2:2). Just as food must be taken into the system and digested before it can benefit the body, so must the Scriptures to strengthen the soul.

Laying up scripture in the heart provides comfort and strength in times of trouble. “Unless thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction. I will never forget thy precepts; for with them thou hast quickened me (Psalms 119:92-93).

The Word of God accompanied by faith is a powerful weapon. When tempted by Satan in the wilderness, Jesus successfully defended himself with the Word of God that was stored up in his heart (Matthew 4:1-11). To emphasize how important the Word of God is Jesus said, “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)

The Word of God contains numerous promises about many situations, circumstances and issues. Reading, meditating and proclaiming these Scriptures helps us to understand how God wants us to act in diverse circumstances and increases our faith. Praying the Word of God helps us to pray and intercede with wisdom and knowledge rather than from a perspective of fear and anxiety. I encourage you to build your prayers around these commands and mandates from Scripture.

Summary:

Our prayers are answered when we pray according to the will of God which is found in His Word. (1 John 5:14-15)

When we pray the Word it increases faith in our hearts. (Rom.10:17)

The Word has authority. When God created the universe, He did it through His Son, the Word. The Word still has the same power. When we call on the living Word, it has the power to give life and to re-create.
