Praying is by far the most powerful and wisest thing you can do for yourself, your loved ones and anyone around you.
Prayer moves the hands and heart of God. He desires your love, your time, your attention and your fellowship.
The more you pray, you will become a Prayer Warrior, an Intercessor just as Jesus (For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus – 1 Timothy 2:5) and the Holy Spirit (The Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words – Romans 8:26).
The more you pray, you will feel and live your life as if nothing is impossible. As you pray, your faith in God will grow stronger every day. Your strong faith will sustain you, and you will prevail.
This article is a compilation of effective prayer points, along with their corresponding Bible verses. Use them for your own personal spiritual growth and self-development.
May these prayer points be a springboard to a lifelong journey of intercession and a faith filled life, experiencing the loving kindness and the miracle-working power of God.
A prayer point is taking a Bible principle, promise, statement, hymn, poem or affirmation, and then believe it, ask God for it and speak it into existence in your life.
For example, 1 Samuel 17:47 states:All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands
If you use this verse to be your prayer point, you can pray or declare something like this:
The Lord is at my side
He is my mighty Hero
My battles are not mine
My struggles are not mine
My problems are not mine
I declare that through Him, the battle is already won
In Jesus Name
The Power of I AM
Did you know that these two words – I AM – have the power to either destroy or empower your life? Words are powerful weapons. You can use them for good or evil.
When you say “I AM”, you are telling the Universe to give you anything that follows those two words. You are actually creating a movement. You are speaking something into existence.
Say “I AM Broke”, and that is how you’ll stay.
Say “I AM So Old”, and wrinkles comes looking for you.
The “I AM’s” that comes out of your mouth will bring either success or failure. Do you want more success and well-being in your life? Start speaking positive words into existence and you’ll reeducate and condition yourself to attract wealth, honor, holiness, health, happiness and prosperity.
