How to Pray God's Promises

by The Life Team treasure

Jesus promised us we would have trouble. But that’s not the only promise He made. Jesus requires our full committent, but at the same time, He is totally committed to our spiritual growth and vitality, as we see in God's promised to us.

Immediately after telling us we would have trouble, He says, “But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Below are some more of God’s promises:

•    All things are possible with me. (Luke 18:27)
•    I will direct your steps. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
•    I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28-30)
•    I love you. (John 2:16 & John 13:34)
•    My grace is sufficient. (II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalm 91:15)
•    You can do all things. (Philippians 4:13)
•    I forgive you. (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)
•    I will supply all your needs. (Philippians 4:19)
•    You do not need to be afraid. (II Timothy 1:7)
•    I care for you, so cast all your worry on me. (I Peter 5:7)
•    I’ve given everyone a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3)
•    I give you wisdom. (I Corinthians 1:30)
•    I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)

Part of our commitment to Christ should include the phrase “anytime, anywhere”. How does that sound to you when you say it out loud? If it feels like a threatening ultimatum, consider this: God is good and He wants all of you, right now, right where you are. Is that reasonable for the Creator to ask of His creation?

Sometimes God calls people to far away places at specific moments in time. But even the “called” must learn to live in the ordinary, everyday moments God has ordained for them. And guess what? One of those moments is now. One of those places is here. This time and place that you find yourself in is no accident.

So take heart. You’re on the right track. You can live in your calling here and now. One of the most fundamental parts of your calling is to love God and love others.

What is Jesus going to ask you to give in this mission of love? Not to make Him sound cruel or harsh, but… well… everything. And because He loves you, He will discipline you, teach you, and correct you. He’ll walk with you through times of pain and hardship.

    Choose a promise that speaks to a fear you have and memorize the corresponding verse. In the coming weeks when Satan tries to use fear to distract you you’ll want to have this verse close at hand.  Here are three ways you can do that:

    1.    Write the verse down and put it somewhere you will see it often.
    2.    Put the verse in your phone so it’s easy to get to.
    3.    Memorize the verse.

  3. 3Pray God's Promises

    Print out the list above or keep this webpage bookmarked. Pray through 3-4 promises each day for a week. Here's how:

    Start by expressing your fears or frustrations to God openly. Then read the verses and speak the truths outloud to yourself. Ask God to build your faith and confidence in His word. Finally, thank Him that what He has promised will come to pass.

    If you're struggling, you can connect with a mentor to help you pray with confidence and work through your doubts.
