Before I became aware of what is known as ‘the grace message’ (or as I like to call it the truth or the Gospel) I used to say some silly prayers.
I would ask God to forgive me, ask Him to heal me and ask Him to prosper me.
These are silly prayers.
The Word says we have already received all we need with regards to spiritual matters (Ephesians 1 v 3).
We have already been forgiven for all our sin (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 14).
We have already been healed (1 Peter 2 v 24).
We have already been provided abundance and prosperity (3 John 2, John 10 v 10 and 2 Corinthians 8 v 9).
Many of the prayers that we all say today are silly, asking for God to do things for us that He has already done through the finished work of Jesus.
If you are asking for forgiveness today what you are really asking for is for Jesus to come to earth again to go on the cross again.
This is not required as Jesus dealt with ALL sin for ALL me for ALL time once and once only (Hebrews 10 v 12 and 14).
Our prayers should be prayers of thanks and prayers of appropriation.
This is a good prayer, “Thank you Lord that I have been healed through Jesus and His finished work, I speak out that healing now in the mighty name of Jesus”.
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord that you have provided for all my needs already through the finished work of Jesus”.
Ephesians 1 v 3…..Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ
