When we use Scripture in our prayer it shows God we have thought through our praises and petitions.
To pray we need to know the heart of God.
What He has planned for us.
His promises to us.
We need to align our prayers with the plump line of God’s Word.
God’s Word gives our prayers life, infusing vitality into our praises and petitions.
As well as bringing life to the thoughts that frame our petitions.
“The word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword…” (Heb. 4:12).
God is always ready for us.
He always wants to listen to us.
But He also wants us to take the time to know Him.
And that we can achieve through the Bible.
“Dear God, I want to know You! I want to know your word that is living and active, today in my life. Your word is the truth that cuts through the lies and deceive in my life. It is the bread of life that I need every day. I praise Your Word and I praise Your name! I want to know Your heart and align myself with Your everlasting love. Amen!”
