|How To Pray With The Bible by JourneytoEL(f): 7:07am On Jan 10|
Many Christians erroneously think praying with the Bible is holding the book and shouting i bind and i cast like they see in movies, no, there is more to it. Demons are not scared of the Bible as a book and their human agents even read it and can quote the verses very well. What scares the devil is your knowledge of the authority of Jesus Christ and how you can use it as revealed in the Bible.
Our God is the King of all kings, when you come before him in prayers, don't come before him nagging, come in a similar way you would approach an earthly king for a request.
How to pray with the Scriptures
Praying with the Bible involves praying with faith on the revelation of the scriptures.
You can follow these steps:
1. Have faith that all scriptures are inspired by God. (2 Tim 3:16).
2. Believe without doubt that heaven and earth will pass but the Word of God will never pass away (Matt 24:35).
3. Praise and thank him. (Phil 4:6-7)
4 Pray for his Kingdom to come and for his will to be done. (Matt 6:10)
5. Then present your petitions with his own Words and promises in the scripture. E.g in the court of law you will say in section 2 of subsection 1 of the constitution, the law says etc. So should you say, Father, you said in Matt 18:18, whatever i bound on earth is bound in heaven, hence i ask of thee...
6. Isaiah 41:21 says, present your case,” says the LORD. “Bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.
When you go before God in prayers, don't go whining and grumbling rather present your case before God and show him strong reasons in the scriptures, why it should be answered.
Examples of Cases and Strong reasons.
A. If you are newly married and you're having difficulties in financies pray this way,
Father, please grant me favour in my finances( case) remember your Word in Prov 18:22, He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.(strong reason)
B. If you are having miscarriages, rebellious children, spousal issues pray this way,
Father, please turn around my situation to be a blessing to me (case) for your Words say in Prov 10: 22: The blessing of the LORD, makes me rich and prosperous, and he adds no sorrow with it. (Strong reason). This marriage/child/pregnancy you have given me will make me prosper and i will never sorrow over it (case) because your Words are Yes and Amen -2 Cor 1:10 (strong reason)
C. If you are a tither and you notice the activity of a devorer in your financies, you can pray, thus:
Father, please rebuke the devourer sitting on my finances (case) for you the Lord of hosts have promised me centuries ago in Mal 3:11, that you will rebuke the devourer for my sake, So that he will not destroy the fruit of my ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for me in the field.(Strong reason). And I believe you because you are my God and you do not change-Mal 3:16 ( strong reason).
D. If you're seeking the gift/infilling/touch of the Holy Spirit you can say, Father, i seek earnestly for your free gift of the Holy Spirit(case) for you have told me in Luke 11:23,
If we then, though we are evil, know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will my Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"(Strong reason).
E. In times of pandemic like Covid-19, you can say, Father, please protect I and my family from this disease (case) for your Words say in Psalm 91: 5-6, I will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.(Strong reason).
F. For general requests.
Father please grant me this request (case) for your words say in John 15:7,
That if I abide in You, and Your words abide in me, I should ask whatever i wish, and it will be done for me.(Strong reason).
Good examples of people who used this method include Hezekiah who was saved from death when he presented his strong reason(2 Kings 20), Hannah used the let Your Kingdom come and let Your Will done scriptures even centuries before Jesus made in public as her strong reason( 1 Sam 1), The widow of Zarephath who lost her only son, got him back alive through the blessings of the Lord makes me prosper and adds no sorrow as her strong reason(1 Kings 17:17-24). Dorcas was raised back to life on the account of her generosity and alms giving as a strong reason( Acts 9:36-43).
P.s Praying with the scriptures works best for those who have given their life to Christ and by his Grace have died to the power of sin. If you're yet to be born again, please do so with utmost effect and enjoy the blessings in praying with the scriptures.

The Eternal and Only Good God, we thank you for this day and the life you have given us, may this thread, give glory to your name, enlighten and bring more souls to your kingdom. May the scales that the gods of this world has placed on the eyes of many to blind them fall off as they read, in the Mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Where did Jesus pray with the Bible in the Bible?
The Lord's prayer is the only prayer Jesus taught.
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Ok.. Or maybe we should pray to that fanatical Christian moderator deleting comments he feels are anti-Christian? The nairaland moderator "working" for Jesus Christ instead of Seun Osewa that employed him?
Why are the Christian mods "working" for Jesus instead of Seun Osewa that employed them?
You Christian hypocrites! Though I am a Christian, I am totally ashamed of you Christians, bunch of hypocrites! Cowards! Extremists! Pharisees and Sadducees! The only difference between Nigerian Christians and the Boko Haram terrorists is that while the BH terrorists are brave, Nigerian Christians are cowards!
Go to the religion section and see how Atheists and Muslims are dealing RUTHLESSLY with them. They can't defend christianity. Go to YouTube and watch how Dr Zakir Naik is battering and dismembering them to pieces! They are helpless!
But you see them trolling Muslims in the Islam section. Their moderators DO NOT tolerate any posts they feel are insulting to the religion.
Seun must, as a matter of urgency, chide those cowards! If they want a debate, they should be MAN ENOUGH!
STOP DELETING DISSENTING OPINIONS, YOU BLOODY COWARDS!
Nigeria must better!

|Re: How To Pray With The Bible by paulolee(m): 9:25am On Jan 10|
understanding christainity is more important than trying to explain it..
was in a church in my state last year, and noticed sometin...
after the normal 2 offerings, the sunday sermon and calling out of first
timers, the pastor did a special call for seed sowing..
he asked people with 500k upwards to come out for special blessings
n few came out, he letter reduced it to 100k n above n more came out
n ended up in 50k n above and seriously prayed n anointed those rich
what pissed me off was when he said "the rest of your with less than
50k should come and drop whatever you have, the lord needs to bless
u more so you your level can be upgraded" and people were rushing to
go and sow seed to get upgraded...
I angrily took my bible n left the church n blessed the northern begger i
saw near the church with 1k and both of us were happy..
am still thinking If some Christians are reading their bible at all..

JourneytoEL:Give credit to the Author of this, BISHOP DAVID OLANIYI OYEDEPO
|Re: How To Pray With The Bible by Truefaith: 9:31am On Jan 10|
The writer of this article is teaching what Christ said would not be taught to people who know God.
"If.....,say this..." is NOT Christianity.
Or has he never seen:
Joh 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest??
The writer is converting Christian prayers to mathematical formulas.
Only people who don't know Christ teach Him as some sort of formulas

|Re: How To Pray With The Bible by rmbgrasscutter: 9:54am On Jan 10|
A bit from the word of God will never go unfulfilled.
Delay isn't a denial and surely what will be will surely be and no alternative.
Praying is by faith ( the soul shall be justify by faith)
Praying with Bible or quoting verses without faith is ruthless. Pray with an open and dedicated mind Centered on faith and the Lord will grant it.
In conclusion, Bible quote is good but not necessary.
