 Praying the Scriptures

Do you feel your prayers become dull or repetitive? Do you feel like you’re praying “wrong?” Are you ever unsure about what you should pray? Have you ever thought about turning scripture into prayers?

Well build your confidence in your prayers, as you pray the scriptures. Praying the Scriptures allows you to use the words and emotions of the Bible to give you more confidence in your prayers

We all know how good it is to confess scripture, but there is just something transforming and powerful when the scripture is personalised as a prayer of thanks to God. Also Praying Scripture is a powerful way to pray, because as you do this, you are declaring who you are in Christ and what God's word says about you, which can transform you and liberate you from the lies of the enemy.
