Believing Prayer

Jesus answered, “Have faith in God! . .  anyone (who) does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.”  (Mark 11:22)  A major problem with most prayer is the absence of belief.  Words without faith have no power (words without understanding are equally ineffective).  Today at FBC we will discuss the command of Christ.  Believe in God!  Believe in Me! (John 14) One of the ways the Lord’s Prayer blesses the believer is by reintroducing us to God Himself.  Prayer, first, is a  renewed relationship with Him.  We call Him Father.  We imagine Heaven.  We stand under the influence of His Holy presence and Fatherly care.  As we trust Him, we come also to trust His promises.  In the truest sense, we do not believe in prayer, we believe in God.  More on this subject this week.  For now, when you pray do you have faith in God?
