"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have received it, and
it will be yours" - (Mark 11:24)
Prayer puts faith in God and moves God's hand in the world. Only God can move mountains, but faith and prayer move God. In the cursing of the fig tree, our Lord demonstrated His power. Following that, He went on to say that large powers were committed to faith and prayer, not to kill but to make alive.
A faith that makes things happen is described here. This faith is an awareness of God, an experienced communion, a fact.
Is our faith growing or declining as the years go by? Let's make sure that our faith is ever growing and standing strong and firm. We make that happen by committing ourselves to the Word and to prayer. Thus our faith will take root and flourish.
(adapted from "The Power of Prayer" by E.M. Bounds)
Lord, help us realize that only through prayer will our faith grow. We need to be strong in our beliefs and stand firm in our walk. Our prayer lives are directly connected to the depth of our spiritual walk. May we be a people of prayer and a people seeking your heart in all things.
