Prayer Is The Foundation of Every Christian Endeavor
You must realize you have powerful weapons that guarantee results in prayer. First, you have the power of attorney to use the name of Jesus. According to Jesus Himself, this alone guarantees results in prayer (Mark 16:17-18, John 14:13-14; 15:16; 16:24).
You also have the WORD of God. The written WORD of God is His will. It should be the foundation and confidence for every prayer, and is our first handbook for success in every area of life (Joshua 1:8; Proverbs 3:1-24). When prayer is based on God’s eternal WORD, you can approach the Father with the answer on your lips. Knowing the outcome by faith in what God has already said produces a confidence that cannot be shaken, no matter what the circumstances look like.
The problem must yield to the force of God’s written WORD. For example, many hope to be healed and will beg God for it. But faith says, “Praise God, I’m healed because Isaiah 53:4-5 and 1 Peter 2:24 say Jesus bore my sickness and carried my diseases. And LORD, I just want to thank You that because You said it, I believe I am already healed. I receive my healing by faith in Your written WORD, In the name of Jesus.”
