#TheFestivalDiaries: Cracking the Code on Prayer| The Festival, 26th August, 2017.

The Festival Petra Christian Centre

Hey Guys!

The fast has officially begun and I’d like to share with y’all how I pray. Usually, when an issue bothers me, I get scriptures concerning that issue ( Could be up to 20), and then I pray those scriptures. I pray them and confess them. Fasting is also in the mix, as well as worship.

As I confess them, I personalise them, confessing in past tense.

I usually start with scriptures that have to do with the leading of the Holy Spirit, so that God can lead me on how to pray:

E.g.

1. Romans 8: 14 Those who are led by the spirit of God, they are the mature sons of God

Personalising and past tense:

I was led by the Spirit of God concerning so and so issue. I was a mature son of God

2. Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left

Personalising and past tense:

Concerning so and so issue, my ears heard a voice behind me saying “This is the way, walk in it”

When I’m not even clear on what the issue is, or when I wake up with a nagging feeling, I pray to God to reveal whatever mystery lies therein.

E.g.

1. Jeremiah 33: 3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

Personalising and past tense:

I called to God and He answered me and told me great and unsearchable things I did not knoe about so and so
 
 
2. Daniel 2:22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.
 
Personalising and past tense:
God has revealed deep and hidden things to me, including what lay in the darkness
 
So, long story short, it is important to have a repository of scriptures on various topics you might want to pray for, say healing, prophesy, power, arc
 
That’s all on tips😊
As regards prayers, we were energised in church praying for souls.
Cwesi Oteng’s ‘Kabiyesi’ gave me energy, when I began to feel the hypoglycemic pangs of the fast…lol
What’s your favourite go to praise song?
See y’all tomorrow😊😊😊
