Scripture Prayers For Covenant Keepers

Published August 11, 2018 by Covenant Keepers, Inc. in

Proverbs 18:21 states that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. The tongue can be used for good or evil. We can speak about our bad circumstances or we can speak God’s Word over the circumstances. We encourage speaking God’s Word out loud daily. By speaking God’s Word the mind will be renewed, the spirit man will be strengthened and faith will grow. “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV)

In the beginning as we speak God’s Word over our families and homes we may feel like we’re being hypocritical, but God says to “…call things that be not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17 KJV) According to Hebrews 4:2, when united with faith, the Word works! Eventually, our circumstances must line up with God’s Word, but it takes time. Speaking God’s Word is not a one-time event. It must become a way of life.
