A prayer that is based on the Word of God is reminding God of His Promises of blessing and deliverance that you found in His Scriptures that you identified with and believed. In Ps. 119:49 King David prays: “Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.” Here in Ps. 119:49 King David is doing what Isa. 62:6, 7 (ESV) instructs: “…You, who put the LORD in remembrance, take no rest, and give him no rest …” This is in line with 1Thess. 5:17 which says: “Pray without ceasing.”

Eph. 2:11-13 (ESV) reads: “Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands, remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” The word ‘promise’ in ‘covenants of promise’ is translated from the Greek word “epaggelia” and means a divine assurance of good. So in Christ Jesus you have inherited all the divine promises of blessings and not curses.

This is also in line with what Gal. 3:13, 14 says: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

As you search the Bible you will come across Scriptures that relate to your specific situation or condition. These Scriptures can be encouraging or they can be condemning. It is important to note that in Christ Jesus we have inherited divine assurances of good.

When you study the Bible you will come across many Scripture that reproach and condemn. Scripture that reproach and condemn are not divine assurances of good. Reproach and condemnation is the ministry of the Law of Moses. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is a ministry of solace and justification (Rom. 15:5; 2Cor. 3:9).

The Seed of Your Faith

The Word of God in Christ Jesus is sown in your heart by the Holy Spirit. This is not by way of some dramatic spiritual manifestation. Neither is it by way of a dream or a vision.

The Holy Spirit of God in Jesus Christ is a God, says Isa. 45:15 (LITV), who hides Himself. It is the devil who will come to you with all sorts of spiritual manifestations and present himself to you as God (2Thess. 2:4). Matt. 4:3-10 is an account of how even use Scriptures to entice believers to worship him instead of worshipping God.

Diverse spiritual manifestations, including dreams and visions, will taint the Word of God sown in your heart. Diverse spiritual manifestations will result in the answers to your prayer being in the spirit of Jannes and Jambre (Ex. 7:10, 11; 22; 8:7; 18).

A prayer base on faith in the Word of God would start by reminding God about the covenants of blessings and deliverance that speak to your specific situation or need. After all, these are covenants of divine assurance of deliverance that you inherited by faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

Examples of Scriptures speaking against any lack of success in your circumstances:

  • 2Cor. 9:8: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”
  • Phil. 4:19: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
  • 2Cor. 2:14: “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”
  • 2Cor. 8:9 “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”
  • Matt. 21:22: “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
  • 3John 1:2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Some Examples of Scriptures speaking against ill-health:                                

  • 3John 1:2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
  • Isa. 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
  • 1Pet. 2:24 (ESV):  “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”
  • Matt. 8:17: “This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.”
  • Ps. 91:10: “no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.”
  • Ps. 103:2, 3: “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases…”
  • Ex. 15:26: “… I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”
  • Ex. 23:25: “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”
  • 1Thess. 5:22, 23: “Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Some Examples of Scriptures for Your Children:
  • Isa. 54:13: “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.”
  • Deut. 7:13: “And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb…”
  • Acts 16:31: “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
  • Ps. 91:10: “no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.”

These are just a few examples of Scriptures that you can delight in and include in your daily prayer for your circumstances. There are an enormous amount of blessings of salvation in the Bible. As you fellowship with the Scriptures you will find that there are at least two confirmations in the Bible for each blessing of salvation. You will find that there are promises of deliverance for just about every circumstance and adversity in the lives of your parents, your children, your spouse, and even your friends.

King David says in Ps. 37:4: “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Also, Philem. 1:6 says: “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” You delight yourself in God by acknowledging every good thing that you have inherited by faith in the Word of Jesus Christ. .”

In Ps. 21:2, 3 Kind David also says that he shall greatly rejoice in the salvation of God because God have “given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips…for thou meetest him with the blessings of goodness…”

God bless and guide you.
