FACTS SCRIPTURE GUIDE

Blessings.pgThe One Voice Prayer Room features Scripture Verses to help focus, build team, and anchor our prayer conversations in the WORD and SPIRIT. There is value taking the first half hour to pray Gods Word to launch into powerful, and united, intercession for that last half hour.

Jesus is the Word! Whenever Jesus prayed, results happened. Conversations with His Father were the source and heart of his ministry. No wonder the disciples asked Jesus to share his secrets of prayer with them. Jesus highlighted the fundamentals of authentic conversations with His Father. The FACTS format serves to cultivate similar behavior and practice individually and corporately by fine tuning our ability to hear AND obey Gods voice.

God wants me to breath Him in slowly & deliberately.

For numerous years I have used the prepared FACTS verses and more times than I can mention, those verses were like arrows as we prayed for specific circumstances.

I like the FACTS format it builds honesty, camaraderie and is a good thing for me personally.

The confession time develops intimacy.

The FACTS Acronym is simply a memory tool to help practice and develop the essential rhythm Jesus modeled in prayer; a pattern of Focus, Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication.

Although prayer cannot be reduced to a formula, it is vital to grasp the value of a reliable rhythm. Because Jesus Word and Spirit continue to be the ultimate source of how to pray effectively, we find value arranging themes of Scripture, using the FACTS acronym, to help guide our laser focused prayer experiences, especially in a group setting when using the One Voice Prayer Room.

FOCUS is critical.

Without it, prayer power cannot be released to break through and dramatically change people and nations. Focus, helps kick start perspective. As you read the Word, how do you listen to your Heavenly Fathers invitation for your thoughts to stop, to be still; to allow His Spirit of truth to instruct and penetrate into lifes circumstances? Focus will include: upward, inward as well as outward address. Jesus focus began upward, Our Father who is in heaven.

ADORATION gives God intentional honor and praise for Who He is and what He has done. This ultimately motivates our cooperation with Him and puts everything into healthy perspective.

Intercession IS cooperation with God. How do you sincerelydwell on His names, titles, attributes, works, deeds and miracles? What do you believe is true about Him in view of lifes experience? How do you express your appreciation for Who He is? Do you tell Him how He improves your perspective? God inhabits the praise of His people! What new revelation does He bring to lightabout Himself, yourself, about others in this verse? Disclose to Him, out loud, your wonder, hunger and delight to collaborate. Holy is Your NameYOUR Kingdom come, YOUR will be done

CONFESSION is humble agreement with God! Who He says He is and who He says we are!

Confession IS agreement about His total provision for our sin, individually and corporately. How mightyou ignore, justify, hide, and deflect your sins of commission or omission? What does it take for you to embrace His declarations about you and your growing belief in the power of Christs blood? Where might there be unforgiveness or offence? Would you invite and allow His search? How often do you confess, repent, surrender, renounce and forsake sin? What does it mean in your life to demolish arguments and pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God in your thoughts, attitude, words, and action? How do you take these captive making them obedient to Christ Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts

THANKSGIVING is faith exercised with gratitude. It becomes a chosen weapon we embrace and handle from the premise of Jesus redemption – His death and resurrection as provision for our troubling circumstances and our world.

Thanksgiving is a premise of surrender that acknowledges God is greater. Thanksgiving IS the choice totake the keys of the kingdom of heaven and its unlimited resources, to bind and loose in matters that may seem impossible to even understand. Thanksgiving embraces, operates, and gives from another realm, accessed by faith alone; certainly not from our own wisdom or understanding. How do you engage this great exchange of earthly burdens for supernatural, unlimited peace, purpose and plan, into life? As we also have forgiven others.

SUPPLICATION is the persevering requests, asks, pleas, petitions and battles we authentically fight on behalf of others and ourselves, for very real felt needs.

Unrelenting prayer IS what unleashes POWER and can even change Gods mind! How do you join forces inagreement with others on behalf of your loved ones, the lost, the saved, and the prodigal? How do you pray for the most irritating, most influential, and most unlikely? What keeps you stuck or hitting the wall? How are you growing to understand and exercise your God-given spiritual authority? What has God placed before you to wield faith in prayer for? How frequently do you practice prayer and fasting, prayer walking, prayer journalling? What does your imagination believe God can do? What is He leading you to pray? He knows the need better then youdo!And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
