Day 12 of 40-Day Prayer Challenge
Prayer Line (641) 715-3580. Access Code: 454 225
The subject of our prayer today will be faith. Jesus said that all we needed in order to accomplish the task He ask of us was the faith of a mustard seed. Let’s investigate this seed and see what He was actually saying to us. If we are going to understand the potential of faith we have to understand the power of a seed. Jesus spoke of our faith in relation to a mustard seed, which grows 100 times its size. If you saw a mustard seed and didn’t know what it was you would have a hard time imagining what it would become. Would you guess that an acorn would become an oak tree or a black seed would become a watermelon with a red inside? Jesus is saying that if you have faith, awesome things are possible. So don’t pray for the ordinary, pray for the extra ordinary like the seed. Believe that God will do wonderful and breathtaking things during our prayer time today because we believe!
Beth Moore, in her book Believing God, says, “Our toughest battles will invariably concern matters of faith—times when we’re tempted to think God’s Word and His ways won’t work for us, that He has abandoned us, let us down, or failed to come through for us. When we respond to attacks of doubt, distortion, and deceit with the truth of God’s Word, the fiery dart is extinguished and the enemy takes another hit.“
Practice raising your shield of faith every day by declaring: a)God is who He says He is, b)God can do what He says He can do, c)I am who God says I am, d)I can do all things through Christ, e)God’s Word is alive and active in me.
What to Pray? That our faith would become a seed that grows.
