How to Pray God’s Promises

Written by Sikelelwa Venfolo

I have learned that the power of prayer is amazing. A prayer can break strongholds. When you pray earnestly, everything you ask that is according to God’s will comes to pass. I have broken chains of evil through prayer and I believe with all my heart that no evil shall follow me but goodness and mercy. Prayer is my communication with God.

Psalm 124 paints a beautiful picture of the power of prayer:

“If the Lord had not been on our side—let Israel say—if the Lord had not been on our side when men attacked us, when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive; the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, the raging waters would have swept us away. Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

I cannot stress enough how important is prayer in a person’s life.

Prayer and God’s promise

One powerful way to pray is to find a scripture in the Bible and remind God what He said about you. You can pray, “God you said I am blessed and cannot be cursed, God you said your favor is not for a season but for a life time.” When you can say, “God you said” all heaven comes to attention. God is faithful to His Word.

The scripture does not say put God in remembrance of our problems but in remembrance of His promise. (Isaiah 62:6) Sometimes we use prayer to complain.  I do not have to tell God my problems, as He already knows what I am going through. He knows every need, every concern. Do not turn a prayer into a pity party.

Praying for change

If you want to see things change, if you want God to turn things around, find a promise you can stand on. Instead of complaining say, “God you said when the enemy comes in my way you will defeat them. You said you would supply all of my needs according to your riches. You said you are Jehovah and the Lord my provider. You said you would fight my battles, you said what is meant for my harm you will use and turn it for my advantage.” Put God in His remembrance of His promise to bring it to pass.

When you pray the promises instead of the problems not only will it change your attitude from a victim to a victor, but also God’s Word coming out of your mouth is powerful. When God hears His Word coming out of you He dispatches angels with the answers, He sets miracles into motion and He will begin to change things.

It may not happen overnight but stay in faith and keep reminding God what He promised you day in and day out. Instead of complaining say, “God you said”. Instead of begging say, “God you said”. Instead of describing the circumstances say, “God you said”. If you get in a habit of praying God’s promises back to Him, you will see God at work in your life. His Word and all of His promises are yes and Amen.

    Daniel, are you praying for a good wife as well as a good Job?

    Lord, I lift Daniel up to You, and I ask that You would bless him with a good job so that he can meet his financial responsibilities. I pray also, that You would send him the mate of Your choice so that Your Word which says, “It is not good that man should be alone” (Gen.2:18), will be fulfilled in his life, in Jesus Name I pray, amen.

  • Aldo Aldo says:

    Sherry, I ask that the Lord God Almighty, who knows and hears the cry of your heart, meet your need according to His Word. I agree with you in prayer for whatever you ask the Father in my Name, Jesus said, He will give you. (John 16:23)

  • Daniel says:

    Pls pray for me . I need job n bone of my bone (wife )

  • Simon says:

    The Branches And The Vine Are One.

    I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing (John 15:5).

    The beauty of a tree is not in the vine, but in the branches, and a tree should have the same life flowing through the branches, as you have in the vine. Now, this gives you God’s idea; Jesus said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches.” That means we’ve got the same life and nature. Jesus didn’t say, “I am the vine; I pray you become the branches”; neither did He say, “I am the vine; try to be the branches.” He said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches.” That’s a fact for now. So you can boldly say, “Jesus and I are one; we share the same life.” Glory to God !

    Let’s look at another scripture: John 14:23; read the words of Jesus: “…If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” He said if you love Him, the Father will love you, and He and the Father will come to you and settle in you; they’ll come and live with you. He said, “We’ll come unto him and make our home (our abode) with him.” This is talking about oneness with the Father ! We’re one with Him.

    Being born again is coming into union with Christ: that’s the biggest thing about our salvation. When you were born again, not only was your spirit recreated, you were also immersed into Christ; you became one with Him, literally joined together with Him as one divine creation. 1 Corinthians 12:13 says, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” You’ve been made to drink into one Spirit; you’ve become mingled with the Spirit of God as one divine creation.

    This is so amazing ! No wonder the Word says, “You’re a member of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.” You’re not one struggling to attain God’s level; you’re already one with Him: an associate of the God-kind. This is why He calls you a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, called to display the virtues, perfections, graces and excellence of divinity.

    PRAYER

    Dear God, thank you for the honour of my being inseparably one with you; not only have you made me your sanctuary, I’ve also become the conveyor and dispenser of your righteousness, mercy, goodness and grace. I bask in the full blessings of my oneness with you, manifesting your glory, beauty, and wisdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Further Study: Hebrews 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

    1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
