Praying God’s promises (2)
“Call to Me, and I will answer you.” Jer 33:3 NKJV
When you begin to pray scripturally based prayers, you will get the answers you need. Here is why: The Bible is God’s Word, and He always keeps His Word. Here is how to pray: (1) When you don’t have the answer. “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (v. 3). (2) When you’re worried and under stress. “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (Jn 14:27 NKJV). (3) When you need spiritual insight. “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak of His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come” (Jn 16:13 NKJV). (4) When you need power for service. “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do…that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (Jn 14:12-14 NKJV). (5) When you need God’s blessing on your endeavors. “I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing” (Eze 34:26 NKJV). Once you see the results of praying God’s promises, you will never pray any other way.
