I found more promises!!

"Lift up your heads, O you gates!  And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!  And the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle.  Lift up your heads, O you gates!  Lift up, you everlasting doors!  And the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.  Selah" (Psalm 24:7-10)

"And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight."  (1 John 3:22)

"Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him."  (1 John 5:14-15)

"The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.  He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them."  (Psalm 145:18-19)
One more verse sent from a friend who reads my blog:  "And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking,  I will hear."  (Isaiah 65:24)

Thanks, Geneive!

I write a Prayer for Prodigals each week that goes out to people on a mailing list and is used in a time of prayer that we host after Wednesday evening services.  Included is a promise, a name or attribute with which to praise the Lord, and a prayer based on scripture.  Some of you may be on the mailing list.

Today I was looking through some of those prayers, and I found some outstanding promises from God's Word.  They bless me, and I thought they would bless you, too.

"O LORD God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?"  (2 Chronicles 20:6)

"Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God:  for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance."  (Psalm 42:5)

"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:  his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies."  (Psalm 112:7-8)

"Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth.  And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way."  (John 4:50)

"I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."  (Psalm 34:4)

"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."  (Luke 12:32)

"I have seen his ways, and will heal him:  I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners."  (Isaiah 57:18)

"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me;  because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound."  (Isaiah 61:1)

"And it shall come to pass, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy, and to afflict, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the Lord."  (Jeremiah 31:28)

"And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken:  for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name."  (Exodus 33:17)

These are just a few.  Perhaps in a few days I will post more.  

Don't stop praying!  God is working.  He promised!!
