What will God do when we pray in faith?
In Eyewitness, the conclusion of the story of Jesus cursing the fig tree ends with this statement:
“When faith connects your prayer with what God wants to do, you will see it happen. Under those conditions, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, is as good as done.” Matthew 21:22 & Mark 11:24
To illustrate this truth, Jesus gives this example:
“Know this for certain. If you have unwavering faith, you will not only do things like this, but you will say to this mountain, ‘Rise and be thrown into the sea,’ and it will obey.”
Do I pray with this kind of faith? Do I pray believing that it will be done, hoping that it will be done, or even doubting that it will be done?
Whatever you ask in prayer, believing, is as good as done.
How I pray reveals a lot about me. Most importantly, how I pray reveals how I view God. Do I view Him as my Father? Do I view myself as His dearly loved child?
Prayer is an extension of relationship. The more I pray, the closer I get to God. The closer I get to God, the more I pray.
And the closer I get to God, the more I pray with confidence in His heart, His character, His promises and His will.
Father, I don’t just want to pray with faith, as if faith is some magical pixie dust I sprinkle on my prayers. I want to pray with faith, not in what I’m asking for, but in who You are, and in who I am to You.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God, and that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1
