From the Bishop’s Desk
As we prepare for our week of “Spring Revival”, we must get more serious about one thing that still is important in the “will” of God. Well today, I want to introduce to you the second step. You may ask, Bishop Jones, what is it? It is the “Power of the Prayer of Faith”.
The Prayer of faith:
Mark 11: 20 – 25, *Luke 7: 1 – 10, James 5: 13 – 18, Matthew 9: 18 – 26.
The prayer of faith is rooted in our confidence on God’s Word.
The woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9) knew that touching Jesus would get her healed.
Her faith gave her the strength to press through the crowd!
When you are sure that what you are praying for is God’s will for you, the prayer of faith can be employed.
Unforgiveness (Mark 11: 25) and doubt (James 1: 5-8) are the two greatest hindrances to the prayer of faith.
Where the prayer of supplication is seeking God’s will, the prayer of faith is knowing God’s will, praying it and receiving it from Him.
Now are you ready to step it up in the position of praying by faith. Get Ready! –Know Gods Will; Get Set! – Pray for it! Now let’s go! – To receive it!
