Topic: Fuelling Your Prayer Life By The Word
[Seeds of Destiny 18 March 2019 Devotional]
You cannot be worded and be prayerless; to be wordful is to be prayerful.
SCRIPTURE: Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips. Hosea 14:2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot be worded and be prayerless; to be wordful is to be prayerful.
The Scripture makes it clear that we are commanded to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We are expected to pray as often as we breathe. Since breathing is continuous and endless, prayer should also be continuous and endless. Today, we shall look at one key that helps to put us in a prayer mode, thereby fuelling our prayer life.
Now, one of the things that fuel our prayer life is the Word of God. The Word of God is a fuel for prayer. The Word of God and prayer are inextricably connected.
Our anchor Scripture makes us to understand that every time you carry the Word of God, you turn to the Lord in prayer effortlessly. As a matter of practice, anytime I find new revelation from God’s Word, I express it in prayer.
In John 15:7, the Bible says, If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. You cannot be worded and be prayerless. Many people do not pray because they lack what to say or they lack the Word of God with which to pray. But when you are full of the Word, prayer flows naturally. Having utterance in prayer is not a matter of vocabulary but the right word to talk to God about from His Word. When you study God’s Word, you would realize that there is too much to tell God about your life, family, church and the nation, etc., at the place of prayer from the Word of God.
Beloved, you cannot be worded and be prayerless; to be wordful is to be prayerful. My counsel is, make up your mind to deepen your prayer life by a consistent study of the Word of God.
Remember this: You cannot be worded and be prayerless; to be wordful is to be prayerful.
1.Ask God to open your eyes to behold wondrous things out of God’s Word (Psalm 119:18).
2.Strengthen your prayer life by studying the Word of God.
PRAYER: Open my eyes Lord to behold wondrous things out of Your Word (Psalm 119:18). I receive the Word to boost my prayer life by studying Your Word consistently, Lord in Jesus Name.
