Episode 103 - Why you should make God's promises the center of your prayers

Sometimes we get so caught up in life and the frustrations it can bring that we forget who we really are, right?


We are getting ready to start our 10th annual Praying of the Promises of the Cross Challenge! Yay! This prayer challenge is done over the 40 days leading up to Easter, so by the time you finish the challenge and get to Easter morning, you have a vast understanding and a fresh renewal of God's promises and the provision of Christ. You’ll understand what the resurrection of Christ really means.

But beyond that, this challenge reminds us of everything that Christ has given us. When he gave his life for ours, he exchanged all of our fallenness, our depravity, our weakness, our limitations… he exchanged all of that for all of his perfection. And when we remind ourselves of that and understand it even in the minutest detail, it truly is transforming.

It transforms our thoughts. 

It transforms our behaviors. 

It transforms everything about us. 

It changes our perspective on everything. 

And so that is what the next 40 days are. It's not just a one and done. It's over a period of time. 

This challenge is about remembering powerful promises and praying those promises back to the Lord.

If you join our 10th Prayer Challenge, by Easter, you’ll not only understand God's love for you in fresh ways, but you will know how to pray Scripture and how to use the promises of God to bolster your confidence and fight anxiety. 

The Praying the Promises of the Cross challenge has been running since 2015 and is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of participants all over the world.
