I like to look at it this way. I know when people pray the word of God such as this “thank you Father I’m blessed going in and blessed going out, and thank you for healing me and restoring me and making me whole……”
I pray this way (and more, and then some) it seems presumptious to those who are not in the habit of praying this way, but we are speaking and praying God’s word!
It’s a weapon in your mouth, it slays the dragon (your enemy satan) when you speak and pray the word of God out loud. think of it as a weapon, and you won’t feel so wierd about it. Now you are not defenseless! You have a sword, now use it! –
