It is estimated that there are more than 5,000 personal promises in the Bible. However, these promises mean little or nothing to many Christians because they do not claim them by faith. (Hebrews 4:2)
Faith is a word signifying action. For example, bags of cement sitting in a warehouse will never become concrete until they are mixed with sand, gravel, and water. Likewise, God's promises will never become concrete unless they are mixed with faith and action. You must make them yours by believing them and putting your faith to work.
This lesson will show you some of God's conditions and promises concerning prayer and His provision for your needs.
Look up the following verses and identify the condition and promise in each:
Jeremiah 33:3 Condition / Promise
Matthew 21:22 Condition / Promise
I John 5:14-15 Condition / Promise
John 14:14 Condition / Promise
Which promise do you need most to apply to your own prayer life right now and why?
In the following verses, identify God's promises concerning:
Philippians 4:19, Psalm 84:11 Material Needs.
Proverbs 3:5-6, Psalm 32:8 Guidance
Ephesians 1:3, Philippians 4:13 Spiritual Needs
List reasons you can trust Him to keep His promises:
Psalm 9:10, Psalm 115:11, Isaiah 26:4, Nahum 1:7, II Samuel 7:28
In what particular circumstance of your life and for what do you presently need to trust Him more?
These promises are real -- believe them, claim them, live by them.
List at least three things you need to pray for, and a verse for each that promises God's provision:
