Prayer is About Believing Too!
A lot of times when we think about prayer, we think about it as asking God for something.
When we are sick… a loved one is sick… we need financial assistance… we have family problems… these are all times when we turn to prayer.
But a lot of times we stop here.
Have you heard the story about the little girl whose family prayed for rain? She was the only one who left with her umbrella.
When we pray, sure we might as God for something, but prayer doesn’t stop with the asking.
Prayer also includes believing.
“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you (Mark 11:24, NASB).
When we pray, let us also believe in the power of our infinite God of love and grace, to grant us that which is best for us. If we truly believe, just like that little girl who took the umbrella because she believed that the rain would fall, we will confidently step out in faith PREPARED for our “rain” to fall.
Prayer includes believing. Mark 11:24 (tweet this)
