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.

  • Kate Kate says:

    God’s promise is that He will be with us always. He does not promise us that He will be a vending machine handing out things we want. His promise is that the Lordship of Jesus which we know only by faith will one day be made manifest and beyond dispute.

  • Linda says:

    I concur. When we pray Gods promises, answers will come. We must be born again though, and no unforgivemess. The word says if we do not forgive, he won’t even hear us. I love Gods word as he makes a proomise that if we tithe, we will be blessed. The word saysthe blessings of the Lord rich, and addeth no sorrow with it.

Amen.

  • Michael Jantzen Michael Jantzen says:

    Hi Angela. Thank you for sharing. It is really difficult to not know how to fix the relationships we care about most. I would love to pray for you:

    “Lord Jesus, thank you that you see the way forward and that you know how to mend these relationships. I ask that her children would truly come to know you to find healing and reconciliation in their families because of you. Please give her compassion, wisdom and perseverance as she waits and prays. Amen.” If you’d like to team up with a confidential prayer partner, here’s the link: Take care Angela.

  • Angela says:

    I requested for reconciliation with my children. I am praying also and primarily for their salvation; for them to turn to the Lord, to be healed and know His love.

  • Angela says:

    Please agree with me in prayer for reconciliation between me and my children. They stay away because of my faith. I will go on as God wills; in His strength. I have no other family because of the faith, so I would like prayer for a family. In Jesus name. Amen

  • tisha says:

  • Simon says:

    Dear Father I thank you for your Word that has brought the reality of the divine life to light in me. I live a joyful, exciting, and glorious life in absolute liberty and mastery over Satan and all circumstances, in Jesus’ Name.

    I thank your for granting me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation to know you more and more, with my understanding enlightened for the precision and accuracy of the Spirit at all times, in the Name of the Lord Jesus.

    I function by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus; living in the victories and triumphs of Christ! I’m superior to satan, and I’ve overcome the world; because the Greater One lives in me.

    I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus, born with the life and nature of God. I manifest His glory, perfections and grace every where today. I’m the icon of the resurrected Christ, an associate of the God-kind, born to manifest His righteousness and dispense the goodness and excellence of Him who has called me into His marvelous light. Glory to God.

    Lord, I thank you for the authority you’ve given me to use your Name to cast out devils, heal the sick, and dominate this world. The circumstances of life are subject to me as I exercise my God-given authority every day, in Jesus Name.

    Thank you for the Holy Spirit, who always helps me with the right connections I need to put me over in life. I declare that I am divinely connected with all resources—human, material, financial—that are consistent with my destiny in Christ, in Jesus’ Name.

    Thank you for the Word of life in my mouth. I declare in the Name of Jesus that your Word is prevailing in my life, finances, business and health, and in all that concerns me. I walk in continual victory, in Jesus’ Name.

    Truly, I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord; He has anointed me to proclaim His grace and truth to the ends of the earth, bringing men out of darkness into their divine heritage in Christ, in Jesus’ Name.
