When we were growing up we were taught to pray the Lords’ prayer daily knowing it covered everything. Most people do not understand the Lords’ prayer, although they pray it daily so it becomes repetitious.
We prayed the Lords’ prayer every morning with our children desiring the perfect will of the Lord to come to pass in our family’s life. We know the kingdom is within us so we need the kingdom to come to pass in each of our spirits.
After we prayed the Lords’ prayer we would pray what we felt we needed to declare for our family. Sometimes we had to declare something, take authority over something, rebuke something, or quote a scripture with a declaration There were some things we prayed daily for months and some we did not pray often it was according to how we were led by the Holy Spirit.
Here are some examples that you can pray as you feel led. These are not to take the place of your intercessory prayer time or when you are praying for a specific need (salvation, deliverance, healing,… ). They are examples of how you can make declarations over you or your family using the word of God.
Never allow any prayer to become repetitious as then it means nothing to you. As you pray unto the Lord let it come from your heart. Feel the pain, victory, or love with faith believing what you pray each time you pray.
