Good morning! We are thinking this year about prayer. 365 days–praying the Lord’s prayer, learning what He intended us to know. One essential lesson is to include the ingredient of belief. In Mark 11:23, the Lord says ” whoever says to this mountain, ‘be taken up and cast into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart, but BELIEVES that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him.” Powerful promise! Leads to a question. “What forces work against belief?” First on the list is pride. So long as I think I can manage on my own, I do so. Bad decision. Belief in God begins when I stop believing in myself. “If my people, who are called by my name, HUMBLE themselves and PRAY”. How convinced are you that ONLY God can do what is needed in your life? How ready are you to believe HIM? As you pray today, remember that you are joining hundreds of others. Let’s talk again tomorrow.
