Whatever You Ask for in Prayer…Believeadmin888
What’s the next phrase? “…that you have received it” (v. 24). When you ask for something, believe then and there that you have already received it. It is possible to ask for something in prayer and not believe. We do it all the time. We usually give up too soon.
Do you believe that what you prayed last night is going to happen? Then confess, “Lord, I believe.” Maybe you tend to doubt. You might not be a believer all the way. When you start doubting, be honest, like the father of the demon-possessed boy, and say, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24NKJV). We can’t let doubt enter into our prayers. It will short circuit them.
When you pray according to God’s Word and believe that you have received what you asked, it will be yours. That is God’s promise to you.
Prayer: Father, my heart’s desire is to believe You. When doubts rise up, help me to turn to You. Lead me to Your Word so that my faith will grow. I believe that You will help my unbelief and answer my prayers.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Faith is believing the promises.
