Prayer of the Heart for Difficult Requests

“As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.” Psalm 18:30 (NKJV) 

God is faithful to His Word and I am grateful. I’ve been praying for a lot of things for a long time. This year, I've seen God answer so many prayers. 
My reason for praying is not to twist God’s arm. What I really want is to give Heaven full access to my life. Praying is believing “on earth as it is in heaven.” 

God’s way is perfect. I may think that my way or my ideas are perfect but that’s not true. The only perfect way is God’s. 

I pray to know and to walk in His ways. 
The word of the Lord is proven. Isn’t it amazing to know that David knew that before the New Testament was written? We also read in Psalm 119:89 that God’s word is eternal, it is firmly fixed in heaven. 

My ancestors knew that the Word of the Lord is proven. I watched them read and rely on every word that came out of the mouth of God. I saw them live blameless lives before the Lord. I saw them finish well. I saw them leave this earth with no regrets, ready to receive their eternal reward. I also heard their prayers for me. Their prayers were that I would walk boldly in the presence of God. That I would know Him. That I would tell the world about Christ. Let it be so Lord.

I want God’s word to invade my circumstances and my very life. 
God is a shield to all who trust in Him. I don’t know about you but I need this shield. I need the protection that comes from such trust. God is a shield to all who trust in Him. I want to always trust Him. 

I don’t know where your heart is today. I do know that God’s way is perfect. I pray you find your way there. I know God’s word is proven. I pray you read it as a habit. I know God is a shield to all who trust Him. I pray you put your trust in God and leave it there. 

Don’t try to twist God’s arm with your prayer request. Pray with the knowledge that we pray to a good God. We pray from victory. We pray with confidence that God will do exceedingly, abundantly above all we can ask or imagine according to the power that works in us.  

To God be the glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
