Our Pastor at Zion Family Ministeries has been preaching on “Living by the Book” for the past few weeks and we’ve learned how important the Word of God is to our lives. Once we make Bible reading a part of our daily lives, the Word will be in us and we will begin to live that Word and speak it over situations. The prayer listed below can be used to confess God’s Word over our lives every day and I challenge each of you to do just that. You will see changes in your life as God’s Word becomes part of it. I’ve included scripture references from the Bible.
Father, in the Name of Jesus(1), I commit myself today to walk in Your Word.(2) I recognize that Your Word is integrity itself– steadfast, sure, eternal(3)–and I trust my life to its provisions.
You have sent Your Word(4) forth into my heart. I let it dwell in me(5) richly in all wisdom(6). It does not depart out of my mouth; I meditate in it day and night so that I may diligently act on it(7). Your Word is an incorruptible seed(8), abiding in my spirit, and it’s growing mightily in me now, producing Your nature, Your life.
I thank You, Father, that Your Word is my counsel, my shield, my buckler(9), my powerful weapon in battle. It is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path(10). It makes my way straight before me, and I never stumble or fall for my steps are ordered by Your Word(11).
I recognize the strategies and deceits of Satan(12) and I put a stop to them by speaking Your Word out of my mouth in faith(13).
I am confident, Father, that You are at work in me both to will and to do Your good pleasure(14). I exalt Your Word(15). I hold it in high esteem and give it first place in my life. I boldly and confidently say that my heart is fixed and established(16) on the solid foundation–the living Word of God(17). Amen.
