PRAYING PRAYERS OF FAITH
Have you ever wondered why some prayers don’t get answered? There are many reasons, but one of them is that many times when we pray, we don’t believe that we will receive, we only hope that we will receive.
Faith goes beyond hope. It believes without a shadow of any doubt that the prayer will be answered. You can’t have any doubt. I would say it is like a bulldog; he bites and doesn’t let go. This kind of faith doesn’t waiver. It has no doubt. It just expects that what was prayed for will come to pass.
The best way to pray is to find a scripture that aligns with the need and pray it for the situation. For instance, in Psalm 103:2 it says to “forget not all his benefits”. What are the benefits? Go on to 103:3 where it says, “Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all they diseases.”. This is a wonderful promise. Your iniquities which are your sin are forgiven and forgotten by God once we confess them. He never remembers them! What a glorious thing to know that God forgets them, so we should too. The next part says that God healeth (heals) all our diseases. All? Yes! That is what it says.
So, if someone is sick you could say something like this in prayer. Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. Your Word says that you heal all our diseases, so I come against the disease of (whatever it is) in the name of Jesus and command it off of (the person’s name). Then you must believe that God will do it.
The same can be done with finances (Use Philippians 4:19), direction (John 14:26), relationships, and more. As you study the scriptures you will find the ones that meet the situation, then pray the scripture. If you do this and believe when you pray, then you are praying prayers of faith.
If you haven’t been praying this way and have been speaking the wrong things over yourselves and others, then repent, ask God to forgive you and determine to walk by faith from this point on.
