When we pray, we do not pray to change God's mind, but to change our own. We speak, and begin to believe what we speak, that's why the Word instructs us to pray without ceasing, in and out of season. The more you speak what you want to see, the more you believe it and internalize it. God already knows that it is done, but we need to measure up our faith to the level where we can receive what God has already said is yours! Amazing! So we don't pray to God so He hears our prayers, He already knows what we need before we ask it of Him. We pray to affirm our faith in Him and align ourselves with the Word that He has spoken over our lives!
Prayer is such a powerful tool, because not only are you affirmaing yourself, you are also allowing the Spirit of the Lord to change you and align you with your blessings. Prayer defeats the enemy because it is not just words, it is dunamis power when coupled with God's Word. That is why we need to know the Word of God and pray it. God indeed has created a way for us. In His sovereign wisdom and mercy, He has made sure we could find escape and rest through prayer. Mwari makatendeka, and I worship You oh God! Your loving kindness endures forever. Glory in the heavens and in all the earth for all the wonderful things that You have done in our lives! Hellelujah! The highest praise belongs to you. You cause the seas to part, the rains to fall, the mountains to be levelled, the trees to grow and the flowers to bloom. Great is Your name in all the earth!
