You get results when you pray like a boss.
If you want to pray a kind of prayer that brings results you need to pray like a boss. Stop praying like a beggar asking for bread and start to pray like a boss commanding for bread. When a beggar asks for bread, he might not be given it. But if a boss commands for bread — by all means, even if it takes heavens to open and hells to shake – he should get the bread because he’s the boss.

There’s a story in the Bible about a boss, a Roman centurion, whose servant got sick. This boss came to Jesus and asked for healing; his approach was so different that Jesus Himself marveled at his faith and exclaimed:
Mt. 8:13 “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.
2 tips from the Roman Centurion so we can pray like a boss
If we read this passage on Matthew 8, I think there’s going to be a transformation on how we approach prayer. Most of us Christians pray like beggars, crying for something when we should be commanding about it. These are 2 tips that the Roman Centurion taught us which can change the tone of our prayer — from a weak voice as if defeated to a roaring shout of a victor.
5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. …
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.
Don’t forget that you are praying to The Boss.
The Roman Centurion who was a boss himself was sure that like him, Jesus was a person of authority. As we have read their conversation (verses 8-9), the Roman Centurion was so convinced that it only takes for Jesus to say a word for things to happen. Jesus did not even have to lift a finger or visit the sick servant – only a word of command and healing can come. If you are a person of authority, it’s not your problem to make things happen; all those who are under you will have to work themselves to deliver what you wanted. The next time you pray, remind yourself that you are talking to the Master, the King of kings, the Lord of lords. He’s the Boss and He can definitely do anything.
Have a mindset of a Boss… because you are!
Mindsets spell everything. The Roman centurion approached prayer in a way so different than others; like he could use prayer to change how the world works. Today, you may not own an esteemed position like this centurion but you, the person reading this, are given a profound authority that most of the time you forget to use. Here are some verses to prove that you have been given the power to command thru Jesus’ Name:
Lk 9:1-2 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over demons, and to cure diseases . He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to cure diseases.
Lk 10:19 ” Behold I gave you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over the power of the enemy, and nothing may in any means hurt you. .
John 14:13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
This one is my most favorite of all:
Eph 1:22And God put everything under His feet and made Him head over everything for the church, 23which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
Jesus is the head and the church is the body. And if all things are placed under His feet, then that also means all things are placed under our feet. Through the Christ, God placed us in a position to rule once more – a feat we lost when Adam and Eve sinned. Today we can face giants with utter courage knowing that we rule and we overcome — all because of Jesus Christ. Remember, you are not only God’s beloved child; you are a prayer warrior who can make things happen by mere speaking. God has given you authority over all things in this world so pray like a boss.
