The Power of the Spoken Word

Approx 10 - 30 minutes

The Bible tells us that, “The tongue has the power of life and death” (Proverbs 18:21).



Create some declarations of what you believe God’s heart is for the least-reached people groups of the world. Write them down and find scriptures to compliment your ideas.

Find a quiet space indoors or head to the top of a hill and speak out each declaration as if the world depended on them. Be bold and authoritative with your words. Stir up the faith within you, allow the words to change your heart as you call things that are not into being.
