As we learn to pray the word of God according to his will he promises that His Word will be accomplished in our lives. Praying the Word of God expresses our faith to him. Prayer is a safe place a refuge in difficult times. A heart of prayer reminds us of His promises by building faith and expectation in our hearts.

Whenever you come to prayer believe and trust God in all things guard your heart with the Word of God. Never waver in your thoughts or have doubts. God is faithful to his word as long as we stay faithful in our hearts He will stay faithful
