Q: How can I find scriptural promises to stand on?

A:

Prayer that brings results must be based on God’s Word. It contains the answers to prayers we haven’t even prayed yet. Praying those answers from the beginning undergirds our confident expectation that God will do what He has said.

Jesus said, “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” (John 15:7). Need some help finding scriptures that cover your need? Here are a few of God’s great guarantees to get you started
