The Power of the Word

21The last couple of months have brought me deeper into Spiritual warfare study than ever before.  I’ve read about the subject a few times.  I have books on my shelves on the subject.  But I’ve felt the need to dig a little deeper lately.

A couple of months ago, I had an experience, like no other.  I’ve only shared this experience that I had with my husband.  I have not spoken the words aloud to anyone else.

I’m not going to get into what happened now.  Just know, I did not get harmed and nothing out of the ordinary happened.

But the experience showed me that I needed to toss aside my lax attitude about my Spiritual warfare and start taking active control of it.

So, I did what I do best.  Found all of the books that I could read about the subject and uploaded all that I had to my Kindle.  I also read a book that I have on my shelves called A Woman’s Guide to Spiritual Warfare by Sherrer & Garlock.

I have since decided that I need to be a lot more disciplined in my prayer life.  My prayer life needs to be more active and more ongoing.  Naturally, the next step is reading all about prayer.

I have come across the idea of a prayer closet.  I’m really drawn to this.  I am going to convert my closet in my bedroom for this.  I’m really excited about it!  It will be part of my Operation Spring Clean that I have currently going on.

In my research, I am trying to teach myself new ways to use the Bible in prayer.  Using verses out of the Bible is very powerful.  It’s the Word of God!

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11

By practicing this, I am also bringing the blessing to my children.  My son has a time at night most nights getting to sleep, and then resting well once he’s asleep.  I wrote down a Bible verse for him that is adapted to fit him.  When we say our prayers at night, he repeats this verse.  He told me the 2nd night that we did this that he believes it helped him sleep the night before.  I silently thanked God.

By doing this, I will also hopefully, memorize more Bible verses. That is something that I have not ever enjoyed doing.  But I need to have some of those verses ready to use if needed.

Praying is the most powerful tool that we have.  Who wouldn’t want more alone time with our precious Heavenly Father anyway?  The more I pray, the more I am finding it easier to pray.  I guess it’s like anything else.  Practice makes perfect.
