The Prayer of Faith
Your prayers must capture your faith in the LORD
The Bible teaches us that God responds to our faith. He interacts with us based on our faith in Him and His word. He manifests His power and glory to those who trust and rely on Him. This power of faith is put into action through prayer.In other words, prayer is the primary expression of the believer’s faith. It is the language through which faith is exercised and released.
Faith is not wishful thinking. The exercise of faith in prayer is more than “mental assent” or wishing that something good will happen.It is a full assurance in the heart that God is predisposed to hear and that He has already answered. We may begin prayer by asking God for help. Our prayer posture must start with confidence in God and progress into a firm expectation in His abilities.
