How to write a prayer of petition

Jeremy Savelle’s book The Prayer of Petition helped me write my own petition according to God’s eternal Word. If you choose to construct a similar petition, you will need to prepare. Here are the basic steps which you will want to incorporate in writing your own formal request:

·       Realize that God is your only source, not others or yourself.
·       Trust Him in this process, and know that it is His will for you to be whole.
·       Continue studying His Word, and your faith will grow stronger.
·       Use your prayer weapons: the name of Jesus, the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit.
·       Take time to seek your Healer and prepare your heart before you construct the petition.
·       Remember, God’s Word is the final authority. Let His Word and the Holy Spirit guide you to specific scriptures to write.
·       Write your request, and use it as a point of contact to release your faith to receive what you have asked for.
