Praying God's Word

Praying God's Word
by Beth Moore

I became interested in this book after taking part in the Breaking Free study by Beth Moore. Each chapter focuses on a different stronghold and how to use verses in the Bible to pray for freedom. Some of the chapters include: Overcoming Idolatry, Overcoming Pride, Overcoming Feelings of Rejection, Overcoming Ongoing Feelings of Guilt, Overcoming Unforgiveness, and Overcoming Food-Related Strongholds. Using scriptures in my prayers and praying God's word is something I want to improve on in my daily prayer life. There is power in prayer and I think it is so important to have God's word in our hearts so we can remember and claim His promises to us.

Here is an example of a prayer from the chapter called "Overcoming Despair."
"I cry to You, Lord, in my trouble. Save me from my distress." Psalm 107:13
