DIG for Saturday the 20th of May…..calm and with authority, that’s how to pray…..John 11 v 43

In the Gospels we get a wonderful example of how to pray when we look to Jesus.

Jesus did go into the mountains to pray, and we don’t know what He prayed at these times.

But at other times we can read His actual words.

Take when Lazarus was raised from the dead for example.

I think this is one of the most powerful prayers of all time; after all it was used to raise someone from the dead.

Jesus used only three words, “Lazarus, come forth” (John 11 v 43).

So our prayers do not need to be long with fancy words.

Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth, He did not ask for this.

So, we can pray in authority and with boldness, commanding into existence what Jesus has already provided for us.

Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead without a ‘season’ of fasting.

So, we do not need to wait or perform religiously for what we already have in our spirit.

Jesus did not require long prayers to perform His miracles, and we can do the same (in fact He told us we would do greater things than Him).

We can heal with simple words, commanding healing in the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.

God does not require performance or elegant requests for you to heal or set people free.

He requires you to act in the power and authority that you have been given and calming speak out what is required.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you have given me power and authority to speak out healing over peoples lives”.

John 11 v 43…..And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth
