Praying the Word


Praying the Word is the most powerful way to pray!

The Word pulsates with life, and has supremacy over every situation. In Judges 6, when the angel of the Lord told Gideon that he was chosen to be the leader who would lead the Israelites to victory against the enemy (the Midianites), there was at first disbelief on the part of Gideon. When it was all said and done they were to hold a pitcher in one hand that housed a light and a trumpet in the other hand. God instructed Gideon that when he blew his trumpet, that every man was then to blow his trumpet also, and cry. “The sword of the Lord and of Gideon.” Then they were to break the pitcher and let the light shine.


This speaks to me of the power of the Word in spiritual warfare. The Word is a light and shines into the darkness with the penetrating force of power. (Psalm 119:105) The voice was likened to a trumpet in Isaiah 58:1, and the voice was crying forth the Word of God. The Word of God is likened to a sword in Ephesians 6:17, and also in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.”
Nothing can stand against the intense power of the Word of God. It will subdue any enemy and bring peace where chaos reigns.
