About a year ago I stumbled on a little phrase in Scripture that challenged me to affirm the promises of God through prayer.
So I created an easy way to do it systematically and began, having no idea how life-changing it would be, not just for myself but for others who joined in with me as well.
Then a few months ago, I was asked by a women’s ministry leader to create a challenge specifically geared towards praying promises related to the cross of Christ.
I was excited to dive in because I knew it would be good!
But still I was unprepared for how this one simple discipline would enrich my spirit as I meditated on and prayed promises specific to the cross.
I found myself partaking of the manna of Christ Himself. I was feasting on His work and sacrifice. I was drinking Living Water and had a simple, systematic way of doing so. I was gaining a deeper grasp of the gospel and it was food for my soul.
I had no idea how rich and nourishing the experience would be.
This is something I want to do for the rest of my life! And now, I’d like to invite you to discover the wealth of the praying promises of the cross too.
I welcome you to begin your own habit of praying promises. Discover what happens when you intentionally affirm the promises of God, especially those related to the person, work, and provision of Christ.
I promise it is worth every minute you give it, even when those minutes feel bland, ordinary, or boring.
The small seeds you plant in the form of praying promises will reap huge spiritual dividends in your life AND your legacy. It’s just what God does.

Oh, and one of the promises I’m praying for you is Ephesians 1:18-19,
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.”
Amen and amen!
I can’t wait to hear what God does!
