We pray God’s promises, not to remind Him, but to remind ourselves. God is faithful to His character and to His word. Despite circumstances which seem contradictory to His word, His name is “Faithful and True.” Actually those words in Hebrew come from the same root!
When we consider current events we become fearful or convinced that the problems in the Middle East are political. Further we see the issues from a humanistic perspective. But when we pray we see the issues from God’s perspective and recognize the problems are actually spiritual. Spiritual problems cannot be solved by political solutions.
When we pray God’s word we are impacting the spiritual realm from where the solutions come.
