VINE PRAYER: PRAY GOD’S WORD BECAUSE HIS WORD IS ENOUGH TO GO ON

When all we have is your word to go by—your word is enough…

VINE PRAYER: PRAY GOD’S WORD BECAUSE HIS WORD IS ENOUGH TO GO ON

Lord God we’re grateful for your faithfulness to your word. You are not a man You should lie nor do You back pedal on your promise.

Your word never fails.

So when You say you’ve given us new territory we can move forward on your word alone.

But taking new territory requires fighting the enemy. And no one likes to fight alone so we look for strength in numbers. We ask people to fight with us or we seek their counsel—when You didn’t tell us to.

So, Lord keep us from looking to people to help us get what You promised us.

Noting is too hard for You.

Remind us your word is enough. You fixed the fight. You’ve already given us the land.

The fight you’re calling us to is really a fight of faith. Do we believe the word You spoke to us is as powerful as the word keeping the earth suspended in perfect orbit?

Deliver us from needing the company and confirmation of people to do what You called us to.

There are times we need to band together against the enemy, like the tribes of Israel did on either side of the Jordan. But in this fight You want to show us your power—our God who is well able.

We’re grateful You invite us to take part in advancing your Kingdom on the earth.

Thank You for new ground in our families: those living in darkness coming to know the light of Christ, establishing a legacy of faith.

Thank You for new ground in our careers: moving us from jobs to positions of influence.

Thank You for new ground in ministry: giving our words weight and opening doors to share your love and truth with hurting people.

Thank You for new ground in many areas of our lives.

We’re excited that at your word You serve eviction notices to the enemies occupying the territory You promised us!

Lord, your word is enough.

We put all our confidence in You, Lord. And we praise You for the victory in advance.

It’s in Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen!

 

Prayer inspired by Judges 1:2-3.


Here at Vine Life Faith, we pray God’s Word to enjoy God’s will because His Word contains the words He’s obligated to. While we pray inspired by a particular verse, the prayer references multiple verses as the Lord leads. God bless you.

Vine Prayer: Pray God’s Word to Appreciate Him

Recently, someone asked me for my short bio. The verses we’ll pray today contain the short bio God gave Moses. And if you don’t know, God is awesome! Let’s tell Him…

Lord God we’re humbled in your presence today. We realize we couldn’t know You if You didn’t introduce yourself to us. You’re a speaking God, revealing what we’d never figure out on our own. And we thank You for your word to Moses. Because You called him a friend You told him who You are.

You’re a compassionate God. You saw us in our suffering, hopeless to fix ourselves or find You. So, You gave us Jesus. We didn’t deserve Him and we never will.

Your heart of grace is amazing.

We’re grateful You’re slow to anger, despite our stubborn willfulness. Instead, You overflow with love because You are love. Love that pursues us. Love that challenges and changes us. Love that never quits.

And You cannot lie. Every word You speak is truth. Your commitment to your word and your people is all we have to hold on to in these scary times. And it’s more than enough!

And for every way we’ve disobeyed, You’ve forgiven it all because You punished Jesus for all of it in our place. Our sin would have cost our children for generations, but You charged Jesus what we owed and could not pay—because You love us so. And in your grace, You invite us to receive this gift to pass from death to life.

Lord God, You are a wonder!

It’s because of who You are and our place in You we walk into this week confident. You are not angry with us; You love us and look to show us your goodness.

Have your way Lord.

Let those around us see your goodness in our lives and ask us about You. And when we answer, we pray we introduce You well! In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Prayer based on Exodus 34:6-7, Hebrews 8:12.
