Praying God’s promises (1)

28 November 2023 ‘Let my teachings become part of you.’ John 15:7 CEV

According to one method of counting, there are 3,573 promises in the Bible. That’s almost ten promises for each day of the year. When you know which of those promises apply to you, and you fulfil the conditions that go with them, you can literally begin to pray God’s promises into existence in your life (see John 15:7). Will your prayers be answered overnight? Some will, others won’t. ‘Be…followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises’ (Hebrews 6:12 KJV). The most powerful prayer you can pray is, ‘Lord, you promised in your Word that you would…and today I am praying and believing you for it.’ Here are some specific situations and how to pray scripturally about them: 1) When you need guidance and direction. ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye’ (Psalm 32:8 NKJV). 2) When you need deliverance from a situation, or to be set free from a habit. ‘Call upon Me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me’ (Psalm 50:15 NKJV). 3) When you need the strength to stand. ‘Fear not; for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV). 4) When you don’t have enough to meet your needs. ‘My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:19 KJV). If you meditate in God’s Word every day, each time a need arises, you’ll soon learn which of His promises to claim in prayer (see 2 Peter 1:4).
