Confessions of Power

It is always important to pray.  As we know, prayer changes things.  Personally, whenever I pray regularly, I feel God’s power in my life.  There is something about God’s Word coming forth from my own mouth that makes my problems subside. My issues subside. My pain diminishes. Whenever I let the things of life take me away from regular prayer, those same problems grow in power in my mind.  I start focusing on my issues. I start feeling pain and it seems to grow in power.  I have a few prayer books, and many versions of the Bible, the Amplified being my favorite, and I copied these Bible Scriptures from a book called Prayers that Rout demons, by John Eckhardt. I like his compilation of Scriptures because they focus on “engaging the enemy”.  The Bible tells us to “resist the devil and he will flee from us” James 4:7. 
God has graciously given us access to great power through His Word spoken out in prayers to Him.  I’m thankful to Him for providing exactly what I need to survive and thrive in this world. 
Speak out loud the following confessions and plug in the God’s power source for your life!

I thot it would make me feel better cos it was from my heart and thinking about it made me feel happier…but I realise now that only praying to my God can trully release me from the grips of the enemy….My blog did make me feel better but praying to God saying out His word is what has freed my heart. Thank you.

    >You're welcome! The Word of God being spoken out loud is powerful! Whenever I'm anxious or upset, nothing works for me like God's Word spoken from my mouth! Getting into a regular habit of prayer brings peace!

  3. >You got that right. This morning I confessed his word in a song so loudly and so hard that at a point i had to stop cos I was shocked at how hard I was confessing this truth about Jesus being the ONLY pillar of my life that could keep me standing. I did not know why I was saying it so passionately but God did cos He wanted me to be ready in my heart when the storm hit the shores. When it started God's voice in my heart just remineded me…'remember what you were telling me this morning? Now hold on to that and be still. I am your pillar, lean on me now…Praise God!!!!!!!!!!!!
