Praying through the holy scriptures is a mystery that anyone who understands and makes use of will soar high in their walk with God. Praying through scriptures helps us gain mastery over challenges and situations easily. This is a secret that is valuable at every point.  

How To Pray Through Scriptures

The efficacy of the Word of God cannot be overemphasized. The world was created by the Word. The world is also sustained by the same word of God. The word of God has the capability of creating something great from nothing.

Isaiah 55:11 (AMP)
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

The Scripture above opens our eyes to the efficacy of the Word of God. The Word of God always prospers in whatever it is sent to do. 

God is not a vain talker. He says what He can do and He does whatever He says. Everything that proceeds from the mouth of God will be fulfilled and made manifest. No part of God's Word will go unfulfilled. 

Within the Word of God is contained the will of God. And we know that God's will supercedes every other will. The Word of God is the visible expression of what is in the mind of God for us. Times may fail, systems, governments, people may fail but God's Word will forever prevail.

How To Pray Through The Bible

Below are Biblical tips on how to pray through the holy scriptures. 

1. Know What The Bible Says About Your Request

It is important to understand what God says in His Word concerning what you are about to ask Him in prayer, before you go on to pray about it. 

The Bible is full of promises and covenants for every facet of a Christian's life. So if you want to pray a prayer that commits God, you have to know the scriptures, and know what God says concerning that matter in His Word. 

2. Allow The Spirit Guide You In Prayer

The Bible says that the Holy Spirit was given to lead us into all truth. The Holy Spirit knows God's truth. The Spirit of God knows the will of God in every situation. 

The Holy Spirit also knows what God says in His Word concerning a matter even before we pray about it. The Holy Spirit will helps us to say the right words in prayer. We have to depend on His guidance. 

3. Meditate On The Word You Received

The power of meditation should not be underrated. Meditating on God's specific Word over what you intend to tell God in prayer, helps you to personalize the scripture. 

It helps your understanding and allows the Holy Spirit brood upon it in your heart, thereby making your faith in that Word grow stronger. 

Faith in God is based on the revelation you have about Him. And your revelation of God is determined by your meditation on His Word.

4. Personalize The Word You Received

Every word of God that has specific relation to your desire should be personalized. Whatever God grants you access to is for your own testimony. 

5. Pray Confidently, Knowing God Hears You

God cannot lie. When you have seen what God's Word says concerning your challenge, rejoice at it because not even a dot of His word will go unfulfilled. 

Hebrews 6:18 (AMP)
This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us]. 

Praying through scriptures is driving your conversation with God based on the truths you got from the same scripture. As you commune with God in the place of prayer, believe in His integrity to confirm that word.

6. Pray The Scriptures With Boldness

God's Word is the truth concerning every situation. While praying through scriptures, boldly declare the mind of God that you have discovered by revelation from the Holy Spirit. 

Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

The Bible says that God exalts His word above His Name (Psalms 138:2). That should give you boldness to pray His word into fulfilment in your life.

Let's take a few examples below; 

A). Do you need divine healing?

Our Lord Jesus has paid the price for your healing. He lived short so you can live long. Your body is His temple. No sickness is permitted to be in your body.

Isaiah 53:5 (NIV)
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. 

B). Are you in need of marital breakthrough?

God's desire is that you get married and procreate. Marriage was instituted by God. 

Genesis 2:18 (AMP)
Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him. 

You are not permitted to suffer marital disappointments because a good marriage is your birthright in Christ.

C). You need financial breakthrough?

As you engage in the covenant of giving, you are entitled to harvest. 

Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. 

Everything you give out is a seed which will germinate and produce fruits. You are not permitted to suffer lack.

4). You need wisdom for academic excellence?

Wisdom is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Every Child of God is entitled to unmatchable wisdom. You are not supposed to be experiencing any form of failure in your academics.

James 1:5 (KJV)
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 

Everything you will ever desire is in the Word of God. Find out what God has to say concerning your expectation in the Bible and boldly take His word back to Him in prayer.

Final Thoughts On Praying Through Scripture

It is important to understand that continuity is key. We are not supposed to pray through scriptures once and for all. We are to pray once and again. Keep praying through Scriptures until your expectation is delivered into your hands. 

God Has given us the command to bring forth our strong reasons (Isaiah 41:21). What God has said in His Word are your strong reasons that make you a candidate for answers. Praying through scriptures tells God that you know your birthright as His child, and He doesn't withhold the right of His Children. 

God bless you.
