"Since this new covenant gives us such confidence, we can be very bold."
-2 Corinthians 3:12 (NLT)
God seldom chastises His people for being too bold. Rather, he exhorts against timidity and faithlessness.
Bold prayer is more than just communication with God it is partnering with God to bring His will into the earth!
The word "bold" or "boldness" is translated from the Greek word "parressia," which means "Freedom or frankness in speaking." By its definition, the word assumes use of the tongue and vocal cords.
There is power in speech - in words spoken aloud!
Speaking is birthing a thought.
Speaking it gives it life. There are some thoughts that should never be born. There are also many good thoughts that should be born but are not because we won't speak them aloud -- truths, scripture, words of encouragement, words that bless, words that express our authority and power in Christ.
What goes into the mouth feeds the body. What comes out of the mouth feeds the soul because it goes back into our souls through our ears.
