Prayer - Praise and Standing on God's Word
Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
Prayer is a powerful thing. In Psalms it says our tears are bottled up and kept forever. Our words are brought before the Father in a golden bowl, it says in Revelation, by the Spirit through Jesus who is our advocate. He is listening, and He is acting on your behalf. Don’t forget this and never doubt it.
When we pray, we often sense there are reactions in the spirit realm. In the same way, when we declare God’s truths over ourselves and praise Him with hearts of thanksgiving, they stick on us and cover us. They change the atmosphere. They change us. We are no longer the same. They get us out of our self-pity, anxiety, confusion and self-doubt. They change our mindset and reorient our thinking to Kingdom thinking.
Father, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, as I live your word, may your power flow in greater measure through me to change me and other's you place on my path. Lord, may your purposes for me continue to flourish for your glory. Allow nothing that was meant for harm in my life to prosper. You have determined the pre-appointed time for my life and the exact place that I would dwell. These are exciting times for me to be living in all the works you have prepared for me, guide my every step in them. Continue to flow your rivers of living waters out of me for your kingdom. In the NAME of JESUS... Amen.
