Are you standing on the edge of disappointment? Are you dangling by a thread holding onto your faith as all life’s troubles blow their winds against you? The word of God teaches us that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. (James 5:16 NKJV) Though you may feel your faith to be somewhat shaky, God’s Word says we can have confidence that when we pray, He hears us and we have the petitions we desire of Him. Even though we may feel we have the faith of a mustard seed—that is all the faith we need, according to Jesus…it is more than enough. (Matthew 17:20 NKJV) You don’t have to pray some long elaborate prayer, just pray from the sincerity of your heart.
My Lord and my God, You said that they are blessed who have not seen and yet believe. Yet while you are so close to me, I sometimes doubt your presence and refuse to believe unless I touch and see. If I ever lose hope please strengthen and replenish my soul. Reinforce my faith to remind me that you are with me always as the way, the truth, and the life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Read Psalm 143 for more strength and hope. Blessings and Peace.
