Prayer Declarations and Resources


ALWC Guiding Principle #4, “Prayer is the highest privilege and the greatest weapon in the life of the believer”.  Becaus3e of the truth of this principle, we want to dedicate ourselves to understanding and growing in the power of prayer.  We define prayer as: talking to God, listening to God, and moving with God.  Prayer is a dialogue and graceful interaction between the believer and God, and as such there is a unique and specific language that fuels this conversation.

It is the language of Faith.
In Hebrews 11:6, we are told that without faith, it is impossible to please God.  When the disciples were fearful for their lives in the storm, Jesus asked them “where is your faith”.   Faith is essential to our conversation with God. Romans 10:17, tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Hearing the Word increases our faith, which is powerful because Romans 12:3 tells us that each person has been given a measure of faith, and no matter what measure of faith you begin with, you can increase by giving heed to the Word.
Praying the Word not only increases our faith, but it brings to pass the will of God.  As we pray “thy Kingdom come”  from the Lord’s Prayer, we can use our authority in prayer to bring to pass the will of God by declaring the Word of God. When we pray the Word, all heaven gets behind our prayers.  Psalm 103:20 tells us that even the angles harken to the voice of the Word.
Keeping the Word as the focus point of our prayers increases our faith, brings to pass the will God, and gets heaven involved in bringing forth answers on our behalf of our words.

14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.  1 John 5:14-15  NKJV
