Prayer Partner Biblical Basis


Jesus sent the disciples out two by two:

And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. Mark 5:6

Jesus promised that wherever two or more of you are gathered, He is there with you.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matt. 18:20


Jesus promised that anything two of you ask will be done.

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” – Jesus Matt. 18:19b


Why Pray Scriptures?

There are other ways to pray of course, but praying Scripture is like a springboard. It helps you get started.

Praying Scriptures helps us to think the way God thinks.

 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
 nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 
so are My ways higher than your ways
, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

Praying Scriptures helps us to pray in the expressed will of God.

If we pray the expressed will of God, we can have confidence in the answer! Just think of all the wonderful promises we can pray for and be assured that we will receive!

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:14

 “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Jesus (Matt. 17:20)

We have access to God in the Name of Jesus.

Come into His presence! Bring a friend!

 “You may ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it.” – Jesus (John 14:14)


How to Pray Scriptures:

Example: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Eph 1:3

Rephrase in your own words:

“Lord I praise You that You alone are the perfect Father! Through Jesus, please give me heavenly access to every spiritual blessing you have promised in Christ Jesus, and make this apparent to me. Help me to actively seek these blessings.” 2 Corinthians. 9:9

Try rephrasing the Lord’s prayer and applying it directly to specific circumstances and people in your life!

Three types of prayer:

The Open Bible explains:

“Prayer is asking and receiving; it is talking with God. It is making your request known to Him in faith.

“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened.” – Jesus (Mat. 7:7,8 Read the rest of Matthew 7)

The above Scripture is so simple on the surface that we are in danger of failing to recognize its immensity. Our Lord instructors the believer to ask, seek, and knock, because these three words cover the whole spectrum of prayer.

(1) Prayer is asking and receiving.

When you know the will of God regarding a need, whether it be material or spiritual, you can ask and receive. This is the prayer according to the revealed will of God (1 John 5:14,15)

(2) Prayer is seeking and finding.

When you do not know the will of God regarding a need, whether it be material or spiritual, then you are to seek His will in prayer concerning this need until you find it. This is prayer for knowledge of the unrevealed will of God in a specific need. (Col. 3:1 and Jer. 29:12,13)

(3) Prayer is knocking and opening.

When you know the will of God, and yet you find a closed door, you are to knock, and keep on knocking until God opens the door. This is tenacious prayer – prayer for mountain-moving faith. Knocking prayer perseveres until the impossible becomes the possible. This is miracle-working prayer! (Matt. 17:14-21) All things are possible when you ask, seek and knock.

Prayer Appetizers:

When you are about to have a good meal, the appetizer makes it even more pleasant. In the same way, you can do some good things in prayer to sweeten your prayer time:


…by acknowledging Him, turning your eyes on Him, building your faith, and bringing yourself close to Him. Use your Who God is sheet to pray.


…our true identity in Christ establishes our position in prayer with our Father.


…Who is promised to us by Jesus on the basis of His death and resurrection. The Holy Spirit will guide your prayers into all truth. Truth brings healing, deliverance, and salvation.  Ask the Lord to tell you great and mighty things you do not know and to help you pray.
