When was the last time you reminded God of His promises? Last week? Last year? It's easy to put God in remembrance of your problems, but a more effective, powerful way to pray is to put God in remembrance of His promises.
God says in Isaiah 43:26, "Put me in remembrance; Let us contend together; State your case." Isaiah 62:6 says, "…take no rest, all you who pray to the Lord."
One of the most powerful ways to pray is to find a promise in the Scripture and remind God of what He said about you. "God, You said I'm blessed and cannot be cursed. God, You said with long life You would satisfy me. God, You said Your favor is not for a season but for a lifetime." When you can say "God, You said," all of heaven comes to attention. Why? God is faithful to His Word. Isaiah 55:11 says that God's Word will accomplish and achieve the purpose for which it is sent. It may not happen overnight, but if you will stay in faith and keep reminding God of what He promised you, God will fulfill His promises in your life. You will see His hand of victory!
We all go through things in life that we don’t understand, but did you know that God uses the dark places in our life as part of His divine plan?Take a journey through the scriptures in this inspirational message and see how many people that did anything great went through a dark place but developed new potential in that valley.

Mary’s dynamic declaration to Jesus in John 11:22, “But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask," will help you, along with this inspiring message, to develop “even now” faith. All it takes is one touch of God’s favor! It’s time to get your faith back!
