We have been dealing with the unbelievable experience of GOD talking to us. Now I want to take some time and looking at another unbelievable experience and that is us talking to GOD. Now for the most part that means we are coming to HIM about a problem. Maybe that is where you are today. Well let’s look here for awhile at how to pray about a problem.
Faith is the key that unlocks the door through prayer. But sometimes the situation is so big and the problem is so overwhelming it’s hard to have faith. So the question is how do you get faith in a faithless situation?
Romans 10:17 (NIV) tells us where faith comes from. “Consequently faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the word of CHRIST.”
The word there is rhema in Greek. It says we get faith by listening to the word of GOD. If you want to build faith, it’s simple. Fill your life with the Bible. The more Bible knowledge you have, the more faith you’re going to have. The less you know about the Bible, the less faith you’re going to have. It’s a specific kind of word of GOD. It’s the rhema.
How do you pray about problems and difficult decisions? The keys to prayer in the Bible are the promises of GOD. There are over 7000 promises in the Bible. They’re like blank checks, gifts waiting to be received. If you want to have a dynamic prayer life, you get a promise to claim onto, grab onto, and you can have your answer to prayer.
There is a verse for every need, for every problem, in the Bible. The more promises you know, the more powerful your prayer will become.
Just a thought from the front porch…
