Personal Prayers From Scripture.

How to personalize scripture and use it to pray and build your faith.

One good way to pray is with a personalization of a Bible Passage, often a Psalm,
or a passage from a Psalm. Psalm 91 is a perfect candidate for personalization.
Which is a big word that emans you say "I" instead of "he". In other words you
make it your personal prayer or profession of faith. Also conversion into a personal
prayer means that you change its time refernce, from future to present.

For example:
"I say of the Lord" instead of "he shall say of the Lord".
This makes it even more personal, more applicable to you, here and now.
When you use a passage of scripture in this way it will both build up your faith
in what its promises are, and be a tool to release that faith.

That is why it is a great idea to pray or profess a personalized scripture daily,
or even many times a day. Be sure that your prayers do not become mere repitition
though, you want to meditate on the meaning and speak with conviction based
on the meaning of the scripture you are speaking.

     Psalm 91 - Personalized

  PS 91:1 I who dwell in the shelter of the Most High
    rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

  PS 91:2 I say of the LORD, "You are my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust."

  PS 91:3 Surely You save me from the fowler's snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.

  PS 91:4 You cover me with your feathers,
    and under your wings I find refuge;
    your faithfulness is my shield and rampart.

  PS 91:5 I will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,

  PS 91:6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.

  PS 91:7 A thousand may fall at my side,
    ten thousand at my right hand,
    but it will not come near me.

  PS 91:8 I will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

  PS 91:9 Since I make the Most High my dwelling--
    even the LORD, who is my refuge--

  PS 91:10 then no harm will befall me,
    no disaster will come near my tent.

  PS 91:11 For he commands his angels concerning me
    to guard you in all me ways;

  PS 91:12 they will lift me up in their hands,
    so that I will not strike my foot against a stone.

  PS 91:13 I will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
    I will trample the great lion and the serpent.

  PS 91:14 "Because I loves You" LORD you say You will rescue me;
    and will protect me, for I acknowledge Your name.

  PS 91:15 I will call upon , and you will answer me;
    You will be with me in trouble,
    You will deliver me and honor me.

  PS 91:16 With long life You will satisfy me
    and show me Your salvation."
