The following prayers and confessions
are all Scripture based prayers, “voicing” G-d’s Word in our every prayer.
Praying His Word means praying according to His will. It means that
these words will not return
Faith comes by “hearing” His Word2, as we daily AGREE with what His Word and promises say concerning us, speaking these promises out loud in and out of prayer. We need to conform our speech to what His Word says.
As we thus “voice” His Word daily for our ears to hear, the spirit of our mind, which is our subconsciousness, is being “reprogrammed.” The old way of thinking is gradually “deleted” -put off your old nature, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt… do not be conformed to this world… put away anger, wrath, malice, slander… put off the old, former nature with its practices3 - and accurate, Word-based thinking becomes imprinted, programmed into our subconsciousness or spirit of our mind - but be transformed, metamorphosed by the renewal of your mind… put on, clothe yourself with the new nature [spiritual self], which is renewed and remoulded and reprogrammed into (fuller and more perfect knowledge upon) knowledge, after the image (the [Christ-]likeness) of Him Who created it 4.
We are being renewed in the SPIRIT of our mind day by day5, by letting the Word of G-d (Messiah Yeshua is the Word), which is near us, even in our mouth6, dwell in us richly; and by the Holy Spirit teach and lead us into all the truth7. It is by the continuous absorbing of the truth of G-d’s Word into our thinking and speaking, that we are being set free from the former faulty, corrupted and defeatist kind of thinking8.
It is this thinking - this girding up the loins of, and bracing our mind 9, conformed to G-d’s ways and Word, and His way of seeing and declaring things - that proves what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of G-d that will henceforth direct and influence our life, speech, actions, decisions, and affairs. It creates in us the mind of Messiah 10, Who only did what He saw the Father do, and spoke what He heard the Father say11. By this we are putting on the new nature… being changed, transformed into Messiah’s [character, way of thinking] likeness.
In addition to our hearing the “voice” of G-d’s Word, G-d’s angels also hear and hearken to the “voice” of His Word, going forth to perform it. It is therefore impossible by these three things – the Word not returning empty; our faith filling the Word we hear; the angels going forth to perform the Word voiced - for our prayers to fail. Rather, ALL things are possible for those who believe12.
What follows are only some examples of how to speak, pray, confess and believe. G-d’s plans and purposes for us are all perfect, nothing lacking, without spot or blemish. In heaven G-d’s will is performed with absolute, perfect agreement, in total harmony with His purposes, voluntarily, not under compulsion. We are to do the same on earth, by agreeing with His express will made known to us in the Scriptures. G-d’s Word addresses every single need and situation, providing the answers and solutions to them all.
We must learn no longer to acknowledge and confirm with the words of our mouth the things we see and hear, which are NOT in agreement with G-d’s perfect will. We must learn not to establish with the words of our mouth the things we do NOT want, the things which are in opposition, disagreement with G-d’s perfect will. For faith comes by “hearing”…
If we continually confess sickness, disease, lack, violence, divorce, lovelessness, loneliness, failure, despair, hunger and thirst, homelessness, anger, wrath, malice, lies, slander, bitterness, resentment, grudge, unforgiveness, greed, lust, sexual perversion, etc. etc., - all things which are diametrically opposed to G-d’s perfect will - our subconsciousness absorbs these negative inputs. These contrary confessions “write” a destructive program into the spirit of our mind13, and our (negative) faith in these things fills the spoken words and causes them to be created. It is exactly as Job said, “What I have greatly feared has come upon me.”14
However, in agreeing with G-d’s promises, answers and solutions, we pray in accordance with His perfect will, which assures us that we are being heard and our requests granted15.
1) Romans 1:5 – I walk by the OBEDIENCE OF AND TO FAITH…
2) Hebrews 11:6 – … for without faith it is impossible to please God and be satisfactory and acceptable to Him. For whoever would draw near to and approach G-d must (necessarily) believe that G-d exists and that He rewards with an answer those who earnestly and diligently seek Him (to do His will) in prayer.
3)James 1:5 – For G-d gives to all men generously and without reproaching, faultfinding or begrudging..
4)Jeremiah 33:3; Psalm 91:15 – Because I love the L-RD and cleave to Him, He will answer me when I call. He will protect and deliver me, He will be with me in trouble, rescue and honor me and place me securely on high. He will satisfy me with a long life (in health, joy and prosperity) and afterward receive me into eternal life in His Presence.
5) Isaiah 65:24 – Even before I call He already has heard me and prepared the answer and made provision in advance...
6) 1 John 5:14-15
– …because I always seek to do His will and pray in accordance with His
express will. Hence I have this confidence, assurance and boldness in Him
that whatever I ask in the Name of Yeshua G-d hears and answers me. Consequently
I have already obtained, received from Him that for which I made request.
