No Man on Earth has seen God! What is faith? Believing Something you haven’t seen? Isn’t “seeing = believing”?
Alright! So, at the moment of an accident what do you cry out? “Oh! My heart!”?
What does every heart KNOW? Life here on Earth has a limit! There is no discounting that fact!
What became of them? Money is not happiness. It is not everything!
The challenge is faith! What do you ‘pray’ to? Call out for?
Preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties and grant that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that Love which is immortal, and which you have shown us in Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
“And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” ~ Matthew 21:22
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. ~ Hebrews 11:6
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. ~ Hebrews 11:1
And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. ~ Mark 11:22-24
The Prayer of Faith From James 5:13-20
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
And we pray:
Dear Heavenly Father, You are the Creator of all things and You sustain all of life. I come to You, acknowledging that Your will is best and that Your plan is far greater than any I could ever ask for or imagine. Lord, I come to You with troubles that are weighing on my heart and the hearts of many believers. God, I know that You carry all burdens, and I ask that You share Your yoke with us know during this difficult time.
God, You are a God of healing. If it is in Your will, I ask that You heal (fill in the blank), but I know that whether You choose to heal them or not, that everything will work out according to Your purpose. May I seek You in good times and difficult and learn to trust You more every day. May You increase, and I decrease, as I learn to become more like You. In Jesus’ holy and powerful name, Amen.
