The 3 Step Essential Prayer Strategy
How to Enhance Your Prayers
In one of my favorite books, Hope for the Flowers there is a quote that I hold onto every time my life feels like it's been thrown into the ‘tumble’ cycle of the clothes dryer.
“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
Sometimes, life throws curve balls at us. And they seem to happen all at once too.
Maybe you could relate and maybe you're drowning in an ocean of trouble right now.
But take heart, because your Promised Land might be just around the corner.
In this teaching we will focus on casting our worries and deepening our faith using the 3 Step Essential Prayer Strategy.
Our centerpiece Scripture will be Psalm 141:1.
"I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you."
Let’s begin: It starts with knowing the 3 Essential Step Strategy to Prayer.
Say It, Sound It, Seal It
Airwaves are energy.
When we fill them with God-centered praise, say the Promises of the Bible and BELIEVE, we can break through the barrier of resistance for best living! Listen to the audio tracks included below to experience it.
First, let's explore the 3 steps:
I. Say It:
What is the area in your life that you would like to see improve? Health, finances, a relationship?
Here's some good news. God has the best in store for you.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
In order to claim your victory find one or more Scriptures from the Bible that resonate with your situation and take hold of their Promise.
(If you're not sure how to do so, you can google 'Biblical Scriptures for ______(insert the issue) and you will find many.)
Choose one or more to use as as your 'Sword of the Spirit' (Ephesians 6:17) which is the Word of God.
Say it out loud to really change the molecules in your environment towards victory. By doing so, you alter your reality in the sound realm.
II. Sound It:
Here's where anointed classical music comes in. Classical music is the most intricate musical genre. Think of it as 'high-res' music. Inside its patterns, frequencies and invisible architecture are codes that prepare the atmosphere for prayer.
Below is a prayerful piece of music to use for this purpose written by the great JS Bach. He loved God so much, he became known as the 4th Evangelist. Many people become Believers in Christ just from listening to his music!
Before he wrote a note of music, he penned the letters 'JJ' on top of his manuscript paper 'Jesu Jovi--Jesus Help'. He asked for Divine assistance.
When he finished his masterpiece, he took no credit for it. He wrote the letters 'SDG' To God Alone the Glory.
If you would like to learn more about the life of JS Bach and experience his masterpieces for the spiritual intent it was created for I have a book and recording called Anthem of Faith that extracts the beautiful message of hope inside the music. Learn more about it here.
The piece featured below is called "I Call Unto You." I suggest taking your prayer request, and your 'Sword of the Spirit' from above and focus on it as you listen. The 1st version is a guided listening meditation that I call a 'Sound Soak'. The 2nd audio clip is the music without voice over.
III. Seal It:
Now its time to take hold of the Promise of the Word of God. Seal it with Faith and know in your heart that the Our Heavenly Father stands on His Word to perform it. IT'S ALREADY DONE!
Say it out loud and with authority: "I ALREADY HAVE ________________(your intention) in the NAME OF JESUS!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
Wrap your prayer in sound and seal it with an unshakeable confidence that it will come to pass. Create your reality by using sound to shape your world and align yourself with the frequencies for incredible victory!
