Lesson 1 — The Power of Praying God’s Promises

The Power of Praying God's Promises


All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV)

Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (MSG)

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 

Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. 

Isaiah 40:8 (NKJV)

The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together. The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. The life-maps of GOD are right, showing the way to joy. The directions of GOD are plain and easy on the eyes. 

Psalm 19:7-8 (MSG)
