The father whose son was demon-possessed brought him to Jesus. But while Jesus was away, his disciples were unable to cast out the demon. When Jesus returned, the man said to Jesus “if you can do anything,” please have compassion on us. But Jesus answered that “if you can believe,” all things are possible. Then the man cried out “I believe; help my unbelief!”
And we pray:
O Author and Finisher of my faith, I believe You but still struggle with unbelief. Help my unbelief, Lord, that I may not question your power to overcome every trial or temptation. You have worked mightily in many others before me, and I know you can do the same for me. Amen.
