How to Pray God’s Promises

Written by Sikelelwa Venfolo

I have learned that the power of prayer is amazing. A prayer can break strong holds. 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.

    good article and good comments for this thread

    YOUR AUTHORITY IN CHRIST

    But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
    (Ephesians 2:4-6).

    The Lord Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, far above all principality, and power, might, dominion, and every name that is named. He occupies the most exalted throne there is; and the good news is that we’re seated with Him. Thus,together, we’re reigning over all principality, and power, and might, and dominion,and every name that is named. Glory to God!

    God gave Jesus authority over all creation. At the mount of transfiguration, He spoke out of heaven and said, “…This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him (Matthew17:5).
    Here, God commanded all creation—all of nature—animate and inanimate, to be subject to Jesus.

    Now, in our opening verse the Apostle Paul makes this remarkable statement about us,the new creation in Christ: “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,(by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” ( Ephesians 2:5-6). In the realm of the spirit, you’re seated with Christ; you occupy his place of authority,with the power of attorney to act in His stead. All the powers of darkness respond to, and recognize, your authority in Christ. Therefore, be bold to exercise this dominion in every area of your life.

    You’re not ordinary. You operate from a higher realm where your words are backed with divine power. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power….” All authority has been vested on you to alter the circumstances of your life to be in sync with God’s perfect will. You can speak words of power to break the influence of Satan over men’s lives, and cause the light of this glorious Gospel to shine upon them.

    PRAYER

    Dear Father, I thank you for giving me all authority in heaven and in earth to walk in dominion over all the power of the enemy. I reign gloriously today over every force of nature, as I triumphantly fulfil God’s perfect will for me, in Jesus’
    Name. Amen.

    FURTHER STUDY

    Luke 10:19 (AMP)
    Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

  • Renea says:

    I am asking for prayer for permanent change. I am 40 years old. God has been working on me for a while now. I recently got a new job and home which He blessed me with. On my new job, I was required to take a drug test. The first test came back diluted. I was requested to retest. From the time I first tested to the retest I reconnected with my ex husband and smoked drugs. Was I expecting to have to retest, no.I’ve been praying to God about this, because I would/could loose everything for such a stupid mistake. I know God can turn this around-But is it in His will? I recognized yesterday, after He spoke to me and said, ” EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT,” that this challenge is much bigger than a drug test.God is trying to bless me with all His promises, along with answering my prayers to change my life. We can’t serve good and evil. I

    I am asking for prayer for my son who says that he is gay. I am asking that God reveal the truth to me about the situation and give me the scriptures to pray for him.

  • Jamie Jamie says:

    Well Elizabeth, I’ve got good news. You have God’s help. I love reminding myself of the promise of Romans 8:28 “For we KNOW that in EVERYTHING God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.” Paul wants us to be certain of God’s help and he wants us to know that we receive God’s help in everything. Nothing is left out; no circumstances are exempt from that promise. It does not always seem like we have God’s help in the middle of difficult times like what you are facing right now but the truth is God is there for you right now. Take the time to thank Him, to listen to what He is saying and to follow where He is leading.

    That doesn’t mean not feeling sad about the broken relationship but know that God will lead you to respond in the best way. Trust Him, Listen to Him, Follow Him and Thank Him.

    Thank You Lord for Your unshakable promise. Thank You for what You are doing in Elizabeth’s life right now. Thank You for the way that You will lead her through this. Help her respond well. Lead her through the grief of a broken relationship. Direct her in how she should take steps to heal that friendship. Give her wisdom to know whether to let it go or persistently pursue reconciliation. And in it all give her the peace You have promised that goes beyond our understanding or ability to explain. Amen.

  • elizabeth says:

    Thank you Jamie. For years I have been nothing but helpful, loving and kind. His words and actions have taken a toll in my heart. I cry every night asking how can people be so mean. I really need God’s help.

  • Jamie Jamie says:

    Hi Elizabeth, I am so sorry that your heart was broken by this man. Let me pray for you: Lord God, I pray for Elizabeth and ask that You would comfort her today. I pray that You would help her to have a better understanding of what has caused this man’s anger towards her. Give her opportunity to repair that friendship. Amen.

  • elizabeth says:

    Hi, I am so heartbroken. I was in a relationship for many years. I helped this man and his family financially and by prayers. Recently his mother died and I was with him night and day at her bedside. After she died he started verbally abusing me and blaming me for her death. I understand his hurt but I was there for him and have never cursed or verbally abused him. I tried to be there for him but he put me down and cursed at me. He said that he met someone else and doesn’t need me. It hurts so much. I was repaid evil for my kindness.

    ahh we thought he made it this time, as of aug last year he would have been free of two years free of meth and a year free of mariwuna, he was free of alochol
    10 months, back to going to church and playing in the church band, hes pretty good at it, and yes he has given his life to god, he would make a great man of god, he even composed a a song joshawa,i misspelled it, he does have a loveing heart, he would have a great testimony, god does have a hold on him,
    i cant afford a rehab for him, 2 weeks before new years eve, he was here for 2 weeks, he had a bad cold and he was sick from detoxing also, he was feeling better for 2 days and then monday before new years eve, he borrowed a neighbors bike, to ride 30 miles to were he lived with a woman doing the same thing, plus her daughter does it as well as the daughters boy friend,and they all live in the same apt, and the area is not good, has lots of apts, so theres no lack for what is wanted, and he knows how to obtain it,
    ahh im going to go to a gospel mission downton, that deals with addicts and see what advice they can give me, he had couseling this time,

    im going to add to your prayer that godly men will cross his path that will have great influence on him,
    would you also, again thank you and all who would be praying for him

  • Amber says:

    Thank you for sharing. I agree with you, prayer is so powerful! Communicating is a vital part of life. I like to explain prayer in this sense:
    A mothers have children, then they grow up and head to college. As a mother, you want your child to call and let you know how things are going. So they pick up their phone and call. Our Father in Heaven is the same way. He is in Heaven and we are here on the earth. Our way of communication, like the telephone, is praying to our Heavenly Father. It is a sacred thing. I am so grateful for the opportunity to talk with my Father in Heaven daily. I came along this article that I think you might find of interest, check out this article it’s entitled: “Does Prayer Really Work?”

    Hello Araceli,

    Thank you for sharing some of your story. From reading your comment, I can sense that you’re quite frustrated in this relationship, wondering what the next steps will be. I would like to understand the situation better. Have you been dating for a while? Are you married or moving in that direction? Please feel free to respond here. You can probably tell from reading that we try to keep this comment thread supportive and uplifting, while at the same time offering some advice people can take or leave.

  • Araceli Hernandez says:

    I am with some one who doesn’t believe in faith and has no understanding in life and gods word. I believe differently I believe god puts people in your path for a reason. This person thinks that he should be alone and only care so much. He is a very loving man with a lot of issues and they have haunted us within our relationship I do believe he loves me but his u
    Understanding of love is so different. I ask that god sees for us for I am not perfect and I love this man even thru his flaws and imperfection I pray so may see the light and to continue beside me for I think god has heard me and sent him my way for reasons I still don’t understand myself. Right now there is a lot of hurt and I ask god not for answers but the promise he made to me which I cherish. Amen

  • Claire Colvin Claire Colvin says:

    HI Christabell, It seems strange to me that she would place a condition like that on her offer of employment. Is there a big denominational difference between her church and the one you are attending? For me, her request raises a red flag. Either you’re a fit for the role or you are not. Forcing you to change where you worship feels invasive to me. If you’ve found a church you love where the word of God is preached and you’re learning and thriving, that’s a pretty big thing to give up. What does your pastor say about it?

  • christabell says:

    After several years of searching for a job, a woman of God running a ministry offers me a job but with conditions that i must fellowship in her church despite a lower salary. I believe so much in what my church teachesavs it has chaged my life am deeply troubled but despparately need a job especially working with a faithbased Organization will help me grow spitually. Iam praying n fasting about this. Kindly pray n throw a word of advise

  • Simon says:

    Everyone born of God is born an overcomer, and is by heritage destined to live a triumphant life (1 John 5:4).
    No child of God should be struggling to survive or be a liability, when he should be an asset to the kingdom of God and his generation. God has created you, not for troubles but for triumph.

    However, there is what you must encounter to establish your desired breakthroughs, it is Gods provision for your manifestation as His son. When businessmen operate under it, they become irresistible. When pastors get connected to it, they never lack what to teach their congregation, neither can their messages ever be dry.

    That divine provision for triumphant living is the anointing. It is what brings an end to struggles, and ushers a man into an era of sweat less triumphs.
    Contrary to popular beliefs, the anointing is not limited to ministry, nor is it solely for preaching or teaching. The anointing is meant to make you a man or woman of exploits in whatever area or field you are in. Once the anointing comes upon a man, no one can mistake him for a byword and a proverb; rather, he becomes a man in charge, with everything at his command.

    An anointed man does not have to advertise himself, as the anointing is self- advertising. Once you have it, the whole world will see and know it.

    There’s something about the anointing: it removes stains, eradicates stress and refreshes you. It also ensures that you ascend your God ordained throne, where everything answer to you at all times. There is therefore, no substitute for the anointing, because it’s absence signals the presence of frustration.
    When it comes upon you, whether your wearing slippers or shorts, you will be distinguished, and men, no matter their colour will do obeisance to you.

    Perhaps as you read this post, your life has been characterized by breakdowns – in your health, business, family, finances etc. The good news is that the coming of the anointing upon you will bring to an end the breakdowns of your life, and grant you perpetual breakthroughs in Jesus name !

    The anointing guaranteed your protection:
    Psalm 105:14-15

    The anointing quickens your body:
    Romans 8:11

    The anointing sharpens your mind and makes you of quick understanding:
    Isaiah 11:2-3

    The anointing teaches you all things:
    1 John 2:27

    The anointing is therefore indispensable in the life of a believer.

    I believe you will have an encounter as you read these words and your life will not remain the same.
    Be blessed

    Amen Alfred!

    There are things that happen in our lives and we always ask ourselves why they happen. God has led me to develop a guide titled “How to let God manifest in our lives in a BIG WAY”. In the guide I share key factors that sway us off God’s will without knowing and factors that help us build a strong relationship with Him; where He guides us to His perfect will communicates with us.

    I know how it feels to ask yourself why, why is it happening to me and why am I neglected. The truth is that God loves us so much and He wants the best for us. We face things in our lives so that we can learn from them and be elevated. God’s plan is never to drown us, but to elevate us and what we face prepares us for the elevation. To everyone who is not sure what God is doing in their lives the guide might open your eyes and to find out more about how to get a copy for yourself you can visit the link http://godsloveandrelationships.com/?page_id=100

    I pray that with whatever that everybody is going through God may reveal to you all why you are going through it and what is the reward. I have learnt that in life we don’t suffer for nothing, but for elevation and progress. God bless you all.

  • Alfred Alfred says:

    Hi Sharon, I like your prayer of January 3rd. Right on!
    Rebecca-a, you certainly seem to be going through a valley of troubles! Though almost unbearable, it can be a time of strengthening. As Sikelelwa pointed out, God knows exactly where you are, and He cares about you! Sometimes our prayer is only a groaning, as our hurt is beyond words. That is when God understands our groaning! HE is the one, the only one, who is able to give you hope. There is a word-picture that I think is appropriate here: Pastures in the mountains are often next to a stream. In order to get to a higher pasture, the shepherd takes his flock through the valley to a pasture on the other side of that mountain stream. The valley is a dangerous place, but that is also where fresh water flows. He watches his sheep carefully, and takes them safely up the other side. As you get onto the higher pasture, Rebecca-a, the grass is not only greener, but responsibilities are greater. Your Shepherd is still by your side and you have much to thank Him for. You will be rejoicing; yes, the joy will be evident by your smile. You will have gotten to know your Shepherd more intimately!
    Now, for your son, Travis, who, it seems, got into the wrong crowd. You, Rebecca-a, need wisdom and strength to be there for him. Is there a detox center where you can take him? He does need our prayers, as well as help from professionals.
    Let’s pray together: Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You that we can “pray your promises”. Your Word will not return to you void, but will bear fruit. Help Travis to have a hunger for your word and in it find the way to a new life. I command the power of alcohol and drugs to be broken. Meth will be repulsive to him. All these will no longer have a hold on Travis! His craving for them will vanish, in Jesus name! Speaking directly to these demons of addiction, I command you to get out of him, to go walk in dry places and never to return! We command you, in the powerful name of Jesus. Now go and take all other associated demons with you!!! Thank You, Jesus for giving us authority, that in your name, demons will flee!
    Yes, Lord, we thank You, that Travis will see that life is more than a momentary thrill, but is a time of walking in the light of your word and looking forward to eternal life with You. Build a rapport between him and his mother, Rebecca-a. We pray in the precious name of Jesus; Amen.

  • L. Anderson says:

    Rebecca, From experience; focus and find “you” in it, because you can’t change him. Give him the time. Tell him, if he doesn’t want to be married, then you don’t want to be married to him. It’s important to accept it in your heart, God will help you if you ask Him. There is nothing too big for God (things you know) The time will make your fiance stop and really think about it. ~ When this happened to me, I did marry him and his children, all to find out just 3 mos into the marriage, that he didn’t want to be married after all. God used it. I first looked at it as such a waste of my life, but I have to say it turned out for the best. God revealed some things in my then husband that I didn’t know, and drinking heavily was one of those things. I would have been a horrible life. I feel like God saved me from some major life trauma. I remember saying to him exactly what I advised you to say; basically I just said OK… I remember it like it was yesterday and it was 15 yrs ago. I have since re-married, and all is well. God is so good. Surrender it all to Him.

    Thank you all for your feedback and support and plays to get more support. The hardest part is he does not know he says he has so many emotions going through him. What is even hard is there is his 6 year old boy in this as well, who calls me mom and I love him, which is why I am fighting and praying so much for God to show me the way, this would hurt him so much. I love that little guy like he is my own and would do anything to make this work if that is Gods will. I feel I can do is pray right now, and hope meeting g with a pastor will help shed some light on what to do.

    Hello Rebecca,

    What a hard thing to hear on Christmas day of all days! I’m sure your head is still spinning trying to figure things out. While those who have commented to you are right (–it is good to know now if he’s not ready to love you as his wife, because then you would know not to get married and experience way worse pain later), but that doesn’t change the fact that right now it just really hurts. I would encourage you to talk this out to receive prayer and support from one of our free and confidential online mentors: http://powertochange.com/discover/talk-to-a-mentor/ Take care.

    Thank God for revealing this to you now and not after marriage! Pray for God’s perfect peace and understanding. Yes, you are “hurting” but God will get you through this. He is pointing out to you things you should know before you get married because He cares for and loves you! Pray without ceasing, wait on God’s answer and accept it when it comes!
