00139 - The Prayer of faith
Updated: Mar 10
Faith is when you exercise belief that God will come through before the circumstances change. It’s impossible to get to a place of faith without spending some time going deeper in prayer, and in perseverance to see the issue through to breakthrough.
Matthew 21:22 says ‘And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.’ (ESV)
There are obviously times when God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want, we often feel those moments are unfair. Yet in day-to-day life, if we practised our Faith muscle, there would be many moments where we saw breakthrough in our lives. Make a list of the things you would like to see answers to your prayers for, then pray for them each day for a month and see what happens. When we include God into our everyday lives, He will answer most of our prayer needs, have a go.
It’s your faith muscle which will grow your life journey with Jesus.
Help me Lord to trust you with the everyday things in life which never seem to resolve themselves. Build my faith Lord, Amen.
Action Point You’ll have to choose between the time you take for pleasure and the time you need to take to pray in faith to see it through.
