Prayer is the legal right to ask God to supernaturally intervene on our behalf. “We can stand in God’s presence without fear, without a sense of inferiority, without a sense of guilt, because of all that Jesus has done for us. It is our legal right to come boldly before God to request heavenly intervention in this earth on our behalf.” (Charles Capps)
God doesn’t want us to tell Him the problem; He wants us to seek Him and then ask for the solution. He already knows our problems and what we need before we even ask Him. (Matthew 6:7-8) God wants us to learn to pray with authority, by lining ourselves up with what He has already spoken in His Word so we will release by faith His ability into every situation and circumstance.
I’ve learnt that there is no point reinforcing the problem we are facing by talking over and over about it. Instead we are encouraged to go to God’s word and find out what He says about our situation so that we can then pray as we put a demand upon what God has promised
“A prayer accurately formed and stated from the Word of God will absolutely move heaven and earth, and the things under the earth on our behalf.” (C.Capps)
Let’s not keep telling God and everyone else our problems, when we can far better use our time to ask God for His wisdom and search out His word for the solution. Whatever it is; whether it is physical, financial, your relationships, a need for healing or direction for your future, determine to go to God and His word. Don’t rush it, but search to know His will, so you can pray with faith and boldness, basing your prayer accurately on what He has spoken and promised.
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6)
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
Prayer: Lord please help me to have understanding and wisdom as I spend time in your presence and reading your Word, so that I can know what your will is for every situation I face. Thank you that prayer is my key to have you supernaturally intervene on my behalf. In Jesus Name Amen.
