Effective Prayer


Joshua 1:1–9

God made some extravagant promises to Joshua. He knew that Joshua would face fierce enemies and overwhelming obstacles and therefore would need to remember these assurances in tough times.

We too need to be able to hang on to God’s promises.

Praying Scripture back to God is a valuable tool to assist us in our spiritual growth — “reminding” Him of His promises, as it’s sometimes called.

Repeating the assurances of God’s Word in prayer elevates and guides our requests.

By praying God’s words back to Him, we have assurance that we are praying effectively.

Let us remind God of His promises!
