How praying the promises of God each morning transforms my day

If you are looking to step into each day renewed in the spirit of your mind, I have something exciting and very practical to share with you! You’ll learn how 40 days of praying the promises of God gave me a {very unexpected!} spiritual makeover.. and how it can do the same for you! I’ll also share the 40 promises printable I used so you too can refresh your prayer and spiritual life!

So several years ago, I wrote something in my online journal about praying the promises of God.

I had no idea it would become the most popular post EVER written on my site or result in tens of thousands of people sharing it. (You never can predict these things.) I simply wrote it after reading II Corinthians 1:20 in my time with the Lord one morning.

The Discovery of Praying the Promises of God

If you’ll recall, II Corinthians 1:20 is the verse which says all God’s promises are “yes!” in Christ.

Pretty exciting stuff … but we often overlook the second part of that verse which says, “Therefore, we also give our “amen” or “yes” back to the promises of God.”

That second part gave me pause. I had never considered **my** part or responsibility to amen God’s promises.

The Lord seemed to ask me that day, “What is your life amen-ing, Arabah? Do you amen My “yes” over your life? Or do you amen the world’s “no?”


His probing continued,

“Do you amen My provisions, My presence, My calling, choosing, and acceptance of you? Or does your life amen the negative all around you, the dark parts of your past, the identity others give you, the shame inside you, the lies of the evil one?”

Truthfully, the answer was clear and it wasn’t so pretty. I knew I amen-ed more of life’s “no’s” than I did God’s “yeses.”

And again, the Lord seemed to ask—invite me, really— to consider what would happen if I began intentionally amen-ing His promises, just like II Corinthians 1:20 instructs.

Well it certainly got me to wondering what would happen if I deliberately sat down with one promise from His Word each day and gave my “amen” to it?

Of course I had to try it and see!

40 Promises of God to Start With

I wasn’t sure where to start so I pulled 40 promises of God out of the devotional book I’d just written, Trust Without Borders, and I started praying one promise a day.

Just one.

I didn’t want to over-commit or take on something I couldn’t keep up with. 😜

I also set a time frame so I wouldn’t feel shackled to a lifelong commitment: I’d do 40 days of praying the promises of God to line up with the 40-day devotional I’d written and take it from there.

40 Day Praying the Promises Challenge

At first, praying the promises didn’t seem particularly special. There were no lightening bolts from heaven, no mountain top experiences. Just a few minutes in the morning of affirming God’s “yes” in my life.

But then something started happening. My morning times of affirming promises bled over into other times throughout my day.

For example, when I blew it big time in my home, I would affirm God’s promise that He justifies the ungodly from Romans 4:5  (and the shoe fit, heh.) Instead of wallowing in guilt and shame though, I would experience God’s forgiveness and restoration much quicker than ever before.

When I felt so inept and insecure I could hardly show my face in public, I would affirm God’s promise from II Corinthians 3:5 that my adequacy was from Him. I found myself accepting challenges and invitations to do things I never would have attempted previously.

When I didn’t feel I had the strength to get out of bed to face the day ahead, I would affirm God’s promises to me – that He had given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.

And I discovered something happening within me: day by day my spirit grew stronger, my confidence more firm, my neediness for other’s approval lessened, my relationship with God grew more secure, my anxiety decreased.

Before long, I had this unshakable confidence that God knew what He was doing in me, I wasn’t forgotten, and I didn’t need the approval of others to be who He made me to be. I experienced a fearlessness I’d never known before. I was growing in Christ by leaps and bounds!

II Peter 1:4 says,

“He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature.”

Over the past year I’ve experienced firsthand how powerful the one little spiritual discipline of praying God’s promises can be. Praying God’s Word day by day has transformed my life.

And I want you to see what can happen in your life too.
