First, we thank God for a
particular truth. We turn these truths into simple statements of
thanksgiving or trust. For example, we speak out,
"Thank you that You love
me" John 15:9
(or have forgiven me). 1 John 1:9
"I trust that You will love me" (or forgive me).
Second, we ask God to reveal (to show or to give) particular truths to us. Ask God to release or to hand out to us a spirit of revelation (Eph. 1:17). For example pray,
"Father show me how much You love me" (or have forgiven me).
"Open my eyes to see in a new and true way, how much you love me"
(or have forgiven me).
2. We actively talk with God by praying truths back to Him
that encourage us "to obey" His Word. We can also speak these truths against
Satan's attack on our lives. Here are 2 ways to do this:
First, we commit ourselves (set ourselves, make a choice) to obey
God in the way a person in the Bible did or in the way a verse in the Bible speaks about. We speak a simple statement saying things like:
"I make a choice to obey this word". (for example Matthew 22:37)
"I set my heart to love You
and obey You Lord, with what my eyes look at" (Psalm 101:3).
or, "I set my heart to bear hard times like Paul" (2 Timothy 2:10)
or "pray like Daniel" (Daniel 6:10)
Second, we ask God to give us power to
obey a particular truth in the Bible, or to be like Bible heroes. We ask God
for help to obey in specific areas. For example, pray,
"Father help me to
love You, to speak in a way that pleases You",
or "to spend my time in a way that pleases you."
Also pray, "lead me away from temptation" (Mt. 6:13)
or "deliver me from the works of
the evil one" (Jn. 17:15), or,
"Holy Spirit give me power to obey Matthew 22:;37
or "bear hard times like Paul",
or "pray like Daniel"
