Feeling a bit unsettled? Emotionally tossed around? Me too.
Have things that you’re praying for, but you’ve prayed those same prayers for so long you’re not even sure if you mean them anymore? Me too.
Love a person who is making choices that worry you? So you pray for them… but then still worry? Me too.
I’m asking the Lord for greater faith in my prayer life. I’m tired of being tossed around.
Ask and not doubt. Uh-huh James, you make it sound so easy. Just ask in faith with no doubting! Hmph and hmph. That’s how I feel about you today, Sir James. Praise you God for including Mark 9:23-24 in the stories You’ve given us:
I believe. Help my unbelief.
I believe you are able to melt hardened hearts. I believe you are able to draw people to yourself. I believe you are near the broken-hearted. I believe you have a plan for the most screwed up of lives. I believe you are writing a story of redemption even if the pages seem blank right now. I believe you grant hope and peace beyond understanding.
“I believe Lord! Help my unbelief!”
He answers that prayer. Me and that dad in Mark who also cried out for help, we know for sure. He answers that prayer.
