Reading Verse: Leviticus 11: 1-47
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Everyday we must be praying to God, but praying times are not only about routine. In prayers we can talk to our Father in heaven, and we can even send our requests. Prayers without faith are useless because only by faith we can get God’s promise. Therefore, after we pray just surrender everything to God and trust Him that He is able to do all things and nothing is impossible for Him. Never doubt God’s power, because the one who doubts will get nothing (James 1:6-7).
Start praying in faith, and keep believing that even though we haven’t seen the answer we should keep praying until we get the answer. We’ve got to believe that God will fulfill all in its time. In the Word of God, there was a woman who had been subject to bleeding for 12 years. She had faith that God was able to heal her, and in the end she was purified. So, it’s very important for us to pray with faith.
Praying with faith means we may not be affected by the current situations and circumstances. Even though a situation hasn’t been changed, don’t give up. Keep praying and believe that God is able to do great things. Moreover, we also have to fix ourselves before God because sin is one of the prayer’s obstacles. It is written in James 5:16b that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. So we need to pray in faith and live right before God.
If we pray in full faith, we will get great things from God and we will receive each of His promises. We also should pray in hope where we hope for restoration, healing or receiving the best from God. We must put our trust in Him that He will answer our prayers. Believe that a prayer sent according to His will be answered. So never stop hoping in God. Hope in Jesus never disappoints.
Whatever our struggles are today, bring it all in prayers, and never stop praying.
Keep persevering in God because until this day He always answers our prayers. Amen.
