Praying the Promises of God: How to Strengthen Your Prayer Life

Prayer is such a vital component of the Christian life, with the ability to transform our lives. Praying the promises of God in particular gives us the opportunity to dive into the Scriptures and to actually pray God’s Word back to Him. But what does it mean to actually pray the promises of God? Do God’s promises still apply to us today? And how do we know if we are taking a promise of God out of context?

These are all really good questions!



Use these resources for pray the word of God Scripture prayers. Learn about praying the promises of God.

For the past seven years, tens of thousands of people have used one of our Praying the Promises of God prayer challenges to embark on a journey and discover for themselves the answers to these questions. In the process, we’ve strengthened our prayer lives by praying the promises of God.

During the FREE 40-day Praying the Promises prayer challenge, I share my 4-step process to praying promises from God’s word:

  1. Read it- read the promise in several different Bible translations
  2. Write it- Choose a translation that resonates with you and use this translation to write the passage out by hand.
  3. Ponder it- Meditate on the passage as you go throughout your day
  4. Pray it- Verbalize the passage back to God in the form of a prayer.

    When praying a passage back to God, I like to simply say, “Lord, your word says _______________, and by faith, I’m believing this to be true.”

    This is called giving our “amen” back to God according to II Corinthians 1:20

Our Praying the Promises Challenges can help you dive right in by providing structure and a plan. We generally choose 40 days for our challenges as  that’s long enough to start a strong habit of Scripture and prayer.
