Praying Scripture for my husband~Repost

1st Monday Every Month at Chrysalis

(a little late!)

I believe that praying Scripture is a powerful way to pray.
Jesus used Scripture when he prayed.

Matthew 4:1-11 (temptation in the wilderness)

Prayer is also part of our armor Ephesians 6:12-17.

In this passage, there is no hint of failure. Only standing firm if we wear the armor.

When we pray, we pray in the name and the blood of Jesus.

Here are some examples

Philippians 2:9-11 The Name of Jesus

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Revelation 12:9-11 the blood of Jesus

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb

I’ve shared with you before that when everything looked horrible for us, I began reading the Bible looking for verses to pray. My journal pages are full of verses I copied. I prayed the Scriptures for me, for Lee, for James.

On Sunday, we were studying in Colossians and I saw this passage. I am praying it for my husband this week.

Colossians 1:9-11

…we…do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

There are a lot of elements in these verses that we all should pray for. I need these things in my own life. I just felt impressed to pray for Lee using these verses.

What about you? Do you pray Scripture?

    amen and what a beautiful reminder! I occasionally will pray “Be strong in the Lord and be of good courage” as well as Rom. 8:28.

    I used to do this all the time. Somehow I’ve strayed from it. Thanks for the reminder of the power in praying scriptures.

    Thank you for sharing this inspiring post Lizzie! I contemplated posting Scriptures to pray over my spouse too. The Word is indeed powerful, and I’d much rather “quote” God’s words than speak my own. :~D

    I wrote down tons of scriptures in a notebook, too, when things were going really badly for us. It is heartwarming to read them now. They are like old friends to me since they sustained me through such a terrible time.

    I love praying scripture. When we do it we know we are praying His will. It is a powerful way to pray.
