Praying God's Word

My favorite Bible Study teacher, Beth Moore, taught me several years ago to "Pray God's Word." These are the scriptures we are praying over Nat(i)e. If you think of more please share them with me!

1.Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. Eph 1:4

  • Oh Lord, please reveal to Nat(i)e early on that you chose them, they are not a mistake but chosen by you to be Holy and without fault in your eyes. May they feel your LOVE...for you loved them even before you created the world.
2. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. Eph 1:5

  • Thank you Lord that you adopted Nat(i)e into your family, praise you Lord that you KNEW in advance. Thank you Lord that your adopted child brings you great pleasure.
  • Even though Nat(i)e will not be genetically mine, he/she will be genetically YOURS...and since I am genetically yours as well...I have the freedom to know that Nat(i)e and I are bonded genetically together through you.
3. We have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. Eph 1:11

  • Lord I can trust in you, knowing that Nat(i)e will receive an inheritance from you and that you will work everything out in Nat(i)e's life according to your plan. Thank you Father for choosing this child IN ADVANCE.
