The Dots and Dashes of Prayer

imagesThere is a purpose for everything under the sun for sure, and tapping through prayer is one of them. What than do I mean by the term: “Tapping Our Way Through Prayer.” Let us consider the how dots and dashes played a vital role as hidden messages through the Morse Code.

* “By 1844, the Morse telegraph began using paper type and electric currents that would leave imprints on paper. The team developed the Morse code as a way to make the movable type readable by those who received it. Morse code consists of a series of dashes and dots, arranged in a way that represents the letters of the alphabet” (Tanya Wozniacki). images

Let us also consider tapping into prayer not as an emotion but as tool of our trade to cause a positive effect over the nations to bring down those strongholds that are hanging in the atmosphere over nations, homes, and families etc.

So, by applying this same principle to prayer, we can then say that when we pray, we are making imprints by the words that we speak into the atmosphere. What is prayed into the atmosphere will cause a change to come into effect by the words we speak. Atmosphere as defined by the Free Dictionary is as follows:

Instead of using the term ‘vibes’ I would suggest we see prayer as vibrations or imprints that causes change in the atmosphere. 

So, what am I saying … just as the Morse Code made imprints onto paper with dots and dashers so the formation of the words that we speak make an imprint into the atmosphere. What we speak will influence the atmosphere and depending on the mood or attitude of those words will determine the end result.

If we think before we speak, then those words should bring forth hope and meaning to someone who needs to hear them. I have had experiences where I was sitting within a little group just chatting away about the goodness of the Lord and what He is doing for people today. I can testify to the fact that each time we did this, someone had a need, and I can guarantee you that the person was ministered to and needs were met.

To pray is a lifestyle and it affects change in everything that we say, do or think. So, let us be “swift to hear, and slow to speak” (James 1:19 NKJV). The Voice Bible puts it like this: “Listen, open your ears, harness your desire to speak, and don’t get worked up into a rage so easily, my brothers and sisters” (James 1:19). I can give you a very positive reason why we should prayer as a lifestyle.

Jesus said in Matthew 12:24b-37 said “… For the mouth simply shapes the heart’s impulses into words. And so the good man (who is filled with goodness) speaks good words, while the evil man (who is filled with evil) speaks evil words. I tell you this: on the day of judgment, people will be called to account for every careless word they have ever said. The righteous will be acquitted by their own words, and you evildoers will be condemned by your own words.

It is the “words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts” that will cause either a negative or positive effect to change the atmosphere (See Psalm 19:14). Proverbs 18:21 writes:Words have power in matters of life and death,
and those who love them will savor their fruit” (Voice Bible).
