How to Use This Book

You can read this book as a daily devotional, or you can consult the table of contents to find prayers you need right now. As you pray through this book, you’ll discover that the prayers are a paraphrase of the accompanying Scripture passages. This is by design because there is such anointing and breakthrough when you pray God’s Word back to Him.


God’s Word is alive and filled with power and can take you into a state of joy.
