The words petition and supplication are outlined as "a formal request addressed to a higher power." This prayer changes things. It is predicated on Philippians 4:6 : "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

To illustrate,imagine you got an audience with the governor of your state. After you went thru the right channels, would you then enter his office without being prepared? Naturally not! You would have your concepts designed and the bitching settled in your mind long before you got an audience with him. Should not you handle yourself in the same way when approaching God? Hebrews 4:16 says, "Let us so come boldly unto the throne of grace."

Do not go into the prayer of petition and supplication without knowing what you need to assert and how you need to say it. Enter the throne room with your petition drawn up according to God's Word. Ask yourself these questions : What happened at Calvary? How did the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus affect this trial I am facing? Then, discover what God has done per your present position. If you want healing, look up those scriptures pertaining to healing. Present your petition. Irrespective of what your current position might be God has supplied an answer for it in His Word. The Cross paid the price for your deliverance.

channels, would you then enter his office without being
prepared? Of course not! You would have your ideas formulated
and the arguments settled in your mind long before you
obtained an audience with him. Shouldn't you handle yourself
in the same way when approaching God? Hebrews 4:16 says,
"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace...."
