How to pray using Bible Verses: 3 Simple Steps

Learning how to pray using Bible Verses is one of the best things to ever happen in my prayer life…

And it’s about to be one of the best things to ever happen in yours.

Have you ever wondered:

+ Does God was really hear my prayers? Or…

+ What’s God’s will for my life?

The uncertainty we have when praying, can make it difficult to go before God with faith.

That’s why reading the Bible, and praying based on what you’ve read is a game changer.

Why you should pray using Bible Verses

Imagine knowing that what you’re praying for is the exact will of God for your life?

How confident would you feel in asking God for those things?

Well, we can have confidence in our prayer lives when we start to pray using Bible verses.

“Faith begins where the will of God is known.” – F. F. Bosworth

The Bible tell us what the will of God is. When we know His will, we can use it to instruct our prayers. When we know we’re praying according to His will, it stirs faith within us.

As the Bible says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV)



Praying the Wrong Way

Can I keep it real with you?

I used to doubt that prayer even worked, or that God even cared about what I had to say.

If I’m being really honest, most of my praying wasn’t prayer – it was complaining.

There was no faith involved.

It wasn’t until I had a crazy dream (i’ll spare you the details), and in the dream the last thing someone said to me was, “your prayer life is dead.”

I had that dream years ago, and I still remember how I felt when I heard those words. #shivers

That’s when I started getting serious about learning how to pray.



Where did you learn how to pray?

So many of us were taught to memorize different prayers when we were younger.

For example, one of the first prayers I remember learning was “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. etc…”)

But beyond learning prayers to memorize, I was never taught how to pray.

And it honestly never dawned on me that there was a Biblical way to pray.

It took me years to realize that the Lord’s prayer gives us a blueprint for prayer. (Matthew 6:9 1-13)

Thankfully, God in His faithfulness is always helping us fill in the gaps!


How to pray using Bible Verses

Okay, let’s jump into a few keys that will help you pray more confidently.

1. Find scriptures in the Bible that reference what you’re praying about.

For example, if you’re praying about your marriage, find Bible Verses about marriage.

Similarly, if you’re praying about healing, find Bible verses on healing.

If you don’t know where to start, do a simple Google search to find relevant scriptures.

You can also pray and ask God to lead you to a specific scripture – that’s my favorite way to practice learning to hear the Holy Spirit.

I’m often so shocked when He points me to a verse that touches on the exact issue I need help with!

God’s Word reveals His will.

So as you read these Bible verses, you’ll begin seeing what God has to say about the issues in your life.



🙏🏾 | 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)


Not only will God’s Word reveal His will, but it’ll also help shift your perspective so it aligns with His.

When you know God’s will on an issue and you’ve aligned your perspective with His, you’ll know what to pray and how to pray.


2. Do this to understand scripture better.

You ever read something in the Bible and think to yourself, “What in the world does this mean?”

Haha, don’t be embarrassed. That happens to me all the time.

Here’s what I’ve learned…

You can’t grasp the Word of God using your intellect.

That’s why the smartest people in the world can read the Bible and still not be changed by the Word of God.

In Jesus’ day, He spoke in parables. Even the religious leaders didn’t understand Him.

It wasn’t about being a “religious expert” or a brainiac.

In order to really “get” what the Word of God is saying, you need revelation.

That revelation comes by the Holy Spirit and happens when you meditate on the Word.

Meditation leads to Revelation

Meditation is one of the ways that the Word of God gets deep down in your Spirit. It brings revelation, understanding, and faith.

So what exactly is meditation?

Meditating means that you’re thinking about the Word, breaking it down, and mulling it over.

And the Bible tells us to do this all the time (Joshua 1:8). Which means you can’t just glance at it once. You’ve got to do it consistently.



3. Pray with faith.

As you meditate on the Word of God, He gives you insight and revelation on the scripture itself, but also on the issues of your life.

Here are 3 Scriptures that tell us how God’s word helps us:

🙏🏾 | Romans 12:2 – “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others Today – 23 Bible Verses to Help

The Bible has so much to say on the topic of comparison.

If you’re looking for Bible Verses to help you stop comparing yourself to others, the ones in this post will help.

I encourage you to:

  • Meditate on them daily
  • And to ask God to help you see yourself the way He sees you.


* All Bible Verses were taken from biblehub.com and are the NLT Translation unless otherwise noted.


10 Bible Verses About Comparing Yourself to Others

Can we just start by pointing out the obvious?

We don’t know everything there is to know about other people.

We usually only see the highlight reels of other people’s lives – the pretty, fun, click-worthy stuff.

Which makes comparing ourselves to others, kinda silly.

Unlike us, God sees all of us – our hurts, struggles, fear, sin, everything…

And He’s concerned with helping us to be more like Jesus, not helping us to be like the woman next door…

So let’s take our cue from Him and focus on letting Him transform us into who He’s called us to be.


2 Corinthians 10:12 – “Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!”

Philippians 2:3-4 (ESV) – “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

Galatians 6:4-5 – “Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.”

James 3:14-16 – “For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.”

Proverbs 14:30 – “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.”

1 Corinthians 3:3 – “for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature? Aren’t you living like people of the world?”

1 Timothy 6:6 (ESV) – “But godliness with contentment is great gain,”

1 John 2:25 (ESV) – “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

1 Corinthians 4:5 – “So don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time—before the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due.”

How to Write Your Own Self Esteem Affirmations

Self-Worth and Self-Esteem Affirmations are plentiful – you can easily find 100s of Affirmations online.

But if you wanna take things to the next level, I recommend writing your own personalized affirmations.

You know the specific issues you’re dealing with.

Which makes you the best person to come up with affirmations that speak to the heart of those issues.

So, I encourage you to spend some time writing your own.

I’ve outlined a few different types below, along with how to write them.

I even included my own affirmations along with some of the Bible Verses that inspire them.

Of course, if you need some help getting started, check out this list of 100 Confidence Boosting Affirmations for Women.


*Quick note before we get to the good stuff: When I talk about self-esteem and self-worth, I’m talking about seeing yourself in a healthy way that’s based on God’s love for you and how He sees you.

I 100% believe that the Word of God is the most secure foundation for our confidence and self-image.

Okay, now let’s get to writing…


Affirmations about your behavior

Why: Your life is, in a lot ways, a result of the things you have and have not done.

And we’ve gotta take responsibility for the things we can control if we wanna see real change.

So use this affirmation to encourage yourself in building better habits.

How: Ask yourself, what habits or character traits do you want to develop?

Example: Personally, I can be super lazy and timid. Which means I don’t do some things I know I need to do because i’m too scared (of rejection, failure, etc) or I just don’t feel like doing it.

So an example of one of my affirmations is this:

I am disciplined.

God has not given me a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Every day I commit to taking actions that change my life.

And I don’t make excuses for myself.

I’m taking the actions today, that will create a brighter tomorrow for me.


| 🙏 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT) – For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline


Affirmations about your ability and power

Why: If you’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what you can’t do it, then it’s time to do some reprograming.

Self esteem affirmations focused on your ability and power can help you take the mental limits off.

And at that point, you can accomplish more than you could imagine…

How: Ask yourself this question, “How can I flip all of the negative things I’ve spoken over my potential?”

Example: I’ve always been very timid. I was afraid of being wrong and I was afraid of being rejected, so I hid a lot.

I shrunk often. And for a long time that defined my identity.

I didn’t think I could ever be as bold and fearless and some of the people I admired.

So my affirmation looks like this:

100 Confidence Boosting Affirmations for Women

Before we dive into confidence affirmations, let me ask you a question…

How do you speak about yourself?

Better yet, how do you speak to yourself?

Are you mean?

Does your own self-talk resemble that of a bully’s?

If you find yourself constantly pointing out your flaws, comparing yourself to others, and talking down to yourself, keep reading.

It’s time to ditch the negative self-talk and replace it with powerful life-giving, confidence boosting affirmations.


What’s Hurting Your Confidence?

The most damaging thing you can do is place your confidence in the wrong things…

Including yourself.

Now, in a blog post about Confidence Affirmations, I know that probably sounds counter-intuitive, so let me explain.

If our confidence is in us alone, we’ve set ourselves up to fail.


Well, because we’re human.

We’re flawed, we’re limited, we’re prone to make mistakes and mess up.

Don’t leave yet, the confidence boosting is coming shortly. Pinky Promise ;p

So if your confidence is only in who you are or what you can accomplish in your own strength, at some point you’ll hit a wall and disappoint yourself.

So what’s the answer then?

The most impactful thing we can do, is place our confidence in God.

The Bible tells is that in our weakness, Christ’s strength rests on us.

🙏🏾 2 Corinthians 12:9 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Being able to go through life, not just in my own strength, but with the power of God resting on me?

Umm, yes! – Sign me up please! 🙋🏾‍♀️

Talk about a confidence booster.

Choosing to be confident in who we are both IN and THROUGH God, takes so much pressure off ourselves to have it all together or to do things perfectly.

Now that we know where to put our confidence, it’s time to get our words in alignment.

But first things, first.


The Cycle of Negativity

We have to address the cycle of negativity.

What exactly is the cycle of negativity?

Well, I’m glad you asked.

Here are the highlights:

  • Your words can be traced back to your thoughts
  • Your thoughts can be traced back to your beliefs
  • Your beliefs are based on your perceptions of yourself and the things that have happened in your life

Your negative beliefs about yourself, give birth to negative thoughts, and ultimately negative self-talk.

And the more you stay in that cycle of speaking and thinking badly about yourself, the more engrained those negative beliefs can become.


How to End the Cycle of Negative Thoughts

Simply put, The Thought Exchange will help you move from a negative to an empowering mindset.

The thought exchange is about trading negative thoughts for confidence boosting, faith building thoughts.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose new positive thoughts about yourself (the Bible has so many good things to say about who you  truly are in Christ)
  2. Turn those thoughts into confidence boosting affirmations (changes your self-talk)
  3.  Meditate on those new thoughts and affirmations (changes your mindset)

Changing your self-talk is one of the best ways to reprogram your subconscious mind.

This concept is so powerful that successful people have used it for generations.

And even the Bible tells us that God transforms us (to be more like Him) by helping us change the way we think.

“But let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” (Romans 12:2 NLT)

One of the great things about using affirmations is that you can start instantly.
