Praying in Faith


On a scale of 1 to 10, what would you say is your current level of faith when you pray?

Read the following verses:  Matthew 6:7-8; Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 4:14-16.  What do these verses say about approaching God with confidence?

There is a relationship between faith and prayer.  Jesus frequently taught His disciples about that relationship.  What do you learn about faith and prayer from Mark 11:20-26; John 14:8-15; James 1:5-8; 1 John 5:13-15?

Read Romans 10:17; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 2:6-7.  According to these verses, what are some ways to build your faith?

Get a sheet of paper.  Write down three things you’re praying about this week.  Does your request match God’s revealed will?  If not, how would you change the request to better match God’s will?  How might you demonstrate faith in God for that request?  What Scripture could you link with each request and pray over that request?

A tiny bit about God’s will.  Jesus taught His disciples how to pray.  Read Matthew 6:9-13.  If you pray in alignment with the Lord’s prayer, you’ll be praying in alignment with His will.  What other Scriptures can you find that teach you how to pray within God’s will?
