The Puritans said it was a good practice to “pray God’s handwriting back to Him.” How can we do that? By memorizing Scripture and praying that Scripture back to God. God loves to see and hear His own words in our prayers.
Tim Kerr, pastor of Sovereign Grace Church Toronto, has put together a booket that categorizes verses of God’s promises and intercessory prayers to be memorized for our praying. He writes,
The fuel of an intercessor is the promises of God. . . Attaching God’s promises to people and situations is the very backbone of all faith-filled praying.
