And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
Do you expect God to answer every time you pray?
There is a condition to this promise about prayer. When you pray, it must be accompanied by faith. When you pray, you must believe that God will answer your prayer. To pray without faith is a waste of time.
When many people pray, they don’t believe God is going to answer their prayer.
They pray to make themselves feel better, but they don’t really connect with God. They go through the motions of praying, but they never see any results because they don’t believe God is going to answer.
Jesus said that God rewards those who pray in faith.
Faith is the beginning point of prayer. Praying in faith is believing that God is not only going to hear your prayer but will answer your prayer as well.
Praying in faith is putting your complete trust in God to bring an answer to your problem. When you pray in faith, you have the promise that God is going to get involved.
Sometimes the greatest hindrance to your prayer is your lack of faith.
God welcomes you to put your faith and trust in Him. As your faith increases, the power of your prayer increases. As you see God answer your prayer, your faith is strengthened.
Maybe, as you begin the week, your first prayer needs to be asking God to strengthen and grow your faith. Maybe your prayer needs to be like the man who brought his son to Jesus. His prayer was, “Help my unbelief.”
When you pray, expect God to answer. Submit your prayer to his will and leadership then trust that He will bring it to pass. As you do, you will find your faith growing, and your prayer life growing more dynamic as you see Him answer your prayer.
Look at that promise one more time.
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. – Matthew 21:22
Make this confession.
I believe God hears and answers my prayers.
When I pray in faith, I receive from God what I ask.
When my faith is weak, God strengthens me.
My faith grows as I continue to pray in faith.
In Jesus Name,
As you begin this week, remember; Faith opens the doors of heaven and brings God’s answer.
