Proclaim God’s Word

Praying God’s Word is one of the most powerful strategies for prayer. God’s Word is truth. God’s Word is clear. God’s Word is power.

A Plan for Praying Scripture:

Read it.

            Read the Scripture several times. Read it out loud if possible.

Realize it.


  • What does this mean?
  • What truth can I affirm?
  • What is the message in the text and context?

Receive it.

(You may choose to write out the Scripture at this point.)

  • Begin by making this affirmation: Lord, Your Word is as a grace gift for my life, my family and my friends.
  • Personalize it.
  • Put your name in the verse(s).

Repeat it.

  • After personalizing the Scripture, say the Scripture back to God.
  • Refer to the verse throughout the day as a reminder.

Below are some passages that you can use to guide your prayer time. (Make each passage a link)
