Praying God’s Word One Hour Each Week

Taking one focused hour each week to pray with others in agreement around God’s Word, is to encounter the transforming and liberating Power of Christ’s Presence in and through you by His Holy Spirit. How does it work?

ACTS: Focus, Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication

If you want to have effective, powerful conversations with God that result in breakthrough answers of prayer, it helps to become well acquainted with these essential “FACTS” or “ACTS” of prayer. They are invitations from God to cultivate and partner with Him in your mutual relationship and conversations.  You will fine tune your skills with regular practice.  We encourage that practice with one hour of prayer in a group each week.


“For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say” (John 12:49-50 NIV; also see John 8:28).

There is power and life in prayerfully declaring God’s Word out loud because God’s Word is a living and active entity with anyone and any realm it encounters.

That is why at WordPrayer - TRIMMS we provide intercessors with weekly themes of Scripture verses that we call the ACTS or FACTS verses. These verses serve as a Word focus for individual and group one hour prayer times. Over and over again they have proven effective in cultivating right attitudes for partnering with God in our spheres of influence by keeping us anchored in God’s Word.

Through His Word, God speaks to us and leads and instructs us how to pray His Kingdom onto earth as it is in heaven. His Word is never wasted:

“…so is my Word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11 NIV).

The Word in us enables us to obey:

“…the Word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it”(Deut. 30:14 NIV).

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
