Sunday Stillness – Mark 11:24

Sunday Stillness – Mark 11:24

I am reading through the New Testament with Margaret Feinberg as a Lenten exercise. I started earlier because I knew I needed more time than 40 days.

As I read through Mark, I came across:

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24, NIV).

We doubt a lot. We wonder if it would be possible for God to answer our prayers. And here Jesus says, “believe you have received it.”

In The Message I read this:

Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything (Mark 11:24, The Message).

Embracing the God-life – listening to His Voice, acting on His Word, praying persistently.

Every day I try harder and harder to do this. And I have seen miracles, divine appointments and God moving mountains.

I believe I have received it when I pray. Do you?

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness. I do try to get to your posts every week but I admit sometimes I don’t have the time.

Here are my favourite links for Sunday Stillness:

  1. This is an area where I struggle, Janis. I pray that God would increase my faith, and I think He has, but I have a long way to go! Thanks for stopping by my place! I didn’t know about your link up, so I joined tonight and I’ll be back next week too!

  2. Hi Janis,
    This is a good reminder for me. So often I get frustrated at life, and in that frustration I think I sometimes stop asking or praying for the miracle. But our God says to keep asking. So thankful for that.

    1. Laura,
      Praying that you can pray through the frustration and find the peace that only God can give. May He bless you mightily.

  3. I’m so glad you mentioned your Lenten plan to read through the NT….I’ve been trying to figure out what my Bible reading plan should look like during Lent and this is perfect. I’ll be joining in!
