Praying in Faith

“…Our Lord taught us to pray in private, in simplicity, with our eye on God alone, in humility and in the spirit of forgiving love. But the primary truth He taught about prayer was this: Pray in faith. He defined faith not only as trust in God’s goodness and power but as the assurance that we have in God’s goodness and power that we have received the very thing we ask of Him. Then in view of delays in the answer, he taught perseverance and urgency in prayer.”

“We must be followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12). We must exercise the faith that accepts the promise and knows it has what it has asked, while at the same time when there is a delay, practice the patience that obtains the promise and inherits the blessing. We will then learn to understand why God, who promises to avenge His elect quickly, bears with them through seeming delay.  It is surely so that their faith may be purified from all that is of the flesh and tested and strengthened to become that spiritual power that can even cast mountains into the sea.”

One response to “Praying in Faith

  1. Greetings friend, I’m Melissa Crawford and I appreciate the prophecy that I found on your webpage. My husband wanted me to invite you to share with our live video streaming e-revival audience as soon as possible. At Spirit University he is training a team of prophetic students and we are all receiving end time visions, dreams and words like yours. One of our students has been seeing fireballs falling from Heaven and as you know, one actually fell on Russia.

    Many other prophetic signs are being confirmed at our e-Revival.

    Everyone receives a prophetic word by my husband James Crawford; if they request one and we have an e-Revival every day! We would love to have you or anybody else’s prophecies shared at God’s revival!

    Times you can call in to share:
    Mon – Fri at 10:45 am & 7 pm (central)
    Sat. at 4 pm (central)
    Sun. at 11 am (central)

    Feel free to call our cell at (318) 655-2297 or email james@world-hops.com for more information.

    Keep up the good work and God bless you.
