I recommend our article Morning prayer illuminates the dawn for a good day to complement this reading.
All Christians know that the Catholic Bible contains the promises of God.
According to experts, there are more than 3,000 promises that each person has.
They can only be withdrawn by their owner, because they bear his name and surname.
The only way to know what these promises are and to claim them as their owner.
It is by reading God’s word and doing His will here on earth.
Everyone, no matter what religion they belong to, has access to the promises of God.
All you have to do is believe in them and ask for them in prayer.
Prayer is more effective when the promises are mentioned than when we burden God with our problems.
Haven’t you heard the saying, “Don’t burden God with your problems, but tell your problems how great God is”?
Well, this is what he means, because God has a promise for every one of your problems.
And sometimes the Catholic Bible has several promises of God for the same problem.

God’s promises in the Catholic Bible
The best thing about God’s promises is that He always keeps them.
His Word says in Numbers 23:19, “He is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should not perform.
He never goes back or changes His promises
“He never forgets His covenant, no, not when it has gone out of His lips” Psalm 89:34.
He does not fail in His promises
“Know with all your heart and with all your soul that there is not a single word that He has spoken that has not come to pass” Joshua 23:14.
The greatest promise
He has promised us eternal life. “And this is the promise he has made to us, the promise of eternal life” 1 John 2:25.
He does the impossible
“What is impossible with man is possible with God” Luke 18:27.
For nothing is impossible with God, for He is the Creator of all things.
And to those who believe in him, all things are possible.
New hearts and new desires
“I will give you a new heart; I will take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh; I will put a new spirit within you” Ezekiel 36:26.
God promises us forgiveness
“If we confess our sins, the Lord is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
When we receive God into our hearts, He cleanses our hearts, the old things are gone and we are new creatures because of His goodness.
The fruit of the Spirit
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faith, self-control, meekness; and against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23.
It frees us from fear
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears” Psalm 34:4.
Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will not fear, for we have His promise that He will be with us.
Salvation for our children
“And I will defend your cause and save your children” Isaiah 49:25
The Bible says that God will increase His blessings on us and on our children.
The promise of the Holy Spirit
“If then you, being evil, are good to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?
Before he went to his Father, he left us a Comforter to accompany us in our most difficult moments.
He is the one who redeems our hearts, to make us see that we are doing wrong and to seek God’s face again.

Provider of all our needs
“My God will supply all our needs according to His riches. Philippians 4:19
He is our greatest provider and the one who sustains us; we need only lay our burdens on Him and rest in the confidence He gives us.
These are some of God’s promises in the Catholic Bible, just waiting for you to claim yours.
The promise of eternal life
This is the greatest of all God’s promises for our lives.
To receive it, we must accept God into our hearts and live our lives according to His will.
If you have not done so, now is the time to do so, you just need to have a willing heart and pray this prayer with great faith.
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be your name
I thank you, Lord, for the immense sacrifice you made for me by dying on the cross of Calvary.
Thank you, Lord, for loving me first, without knowing me and without deserving me.
So today I acknowledge you as my Lord and my only Saviour.
I ask you to erase my name from the book of death and write it in the book of eternal life.
From today I want you to change my life so that I can consecrate it to you.
Please make me feel Your presence close to me and always be the guide of my steps, illuminating the path and leading me to Your feet.
I thank you, beloved Father, and I bless you in the name of your Son, Jesus.
Don’t let your promises go to waste, because they won’t work for anyone else anyway.
The best gift you can give your family is to receive God into your heart, because once you receive Him, your family is part of His covenant.
Don’t forget that there are over 3,000 promises with your name on them waiting for you.
