Learn How to Pray!

Sharlyne C. Thomas of Sword of the Spirit Ministries - your premier online source for prayer and encouragement - reminds you that through the power of prayer, you can use the scriptures to establish the promises of God in your life! Our vision is to inspire and challenge the Body of Christ by using the Holy Bible and personal testimonies to receive inner healing, unwavering joy, and renewed faith in the Lord. By teaching the Church how to effectively pray the Word to the Father in the name of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, we will be able to realize God's willingness to bless us and utilize the power that resides in us to manifest His perfect will in every aspect of our lives. Find the strength and wisdom you need in the Word of God - your SWORD!

The vision of Sword of the Spirit Ministries is based on Ephesians 3:14-21 
"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
