At our monthly prayer breakfast, I read three verses which can transform our lives if taken seriously. I have been reading a great deal lately about positive affirmations and the effect they have on us. Similarly, negative confessions also affect us dramatically.
The Bible teaches us that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. It also shows us the connection between our thoughts and our words. As we speak, we hear our own words. As we hear the words, we consider them. Through repetition, we establish patterns in our brain and form chains of thought. This process molds and shapes our lives.
After reading the scripture, I gave everyone the following assignment: read these verses aloud each day until our next breakfast which will take place on the first Saturday in October. Of course, we don’t have to stop there! As you read this blog, I invite you to join us. Here is the scripture.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
ASSIGNMENT: Read this scripture aloud every day until the next prayer breakfast.
