Praying the Promises of God

Prayers that are guided by Scripture are powerful because when we pray according to God’s will we are assured that He hears and will respond to our prayer.

We know that without faith it is impossible to please God, but the reality is that living a life of faith is difficult and we need all the help we can get!
