Prayers and Promises from the Holy Bible: Part I

God in His loving kindness has given us up lifting and encouraging promises from His Word within the Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible. Whatever your needs, you can find in the Scripture verses the principles you need to address the issues and challenges of life you may face.

It is hoped that the collection of Bible verses will encourage you step-by-step, day-by-day and prayer-by-prayer. However, these collection of Scripture verses are not intended to replace your personal daily Bible study. We hope these selected Scripture passages will be an encouragement to you as you read your Bible daily.
