When You Pray, Believe

(PART 1)

Believing God's promises necessitates first knowing God. Our experience of God comes through daily intercourse with Him. We must learn to receive Him in order to build faith.

READ: Gen. 13:14-18; Gen. 15:1-6; Ps. 27:4-8; Luke 10:38-42; 2 Cor. 3:18; 1 John 3:2-3.
HEART ISSUE: How much time do you spend daily experiencing God through personal intercourse with Him?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, give me eyes and ears to encounter You personally. Make me hungry for You and not just Your fulfilled promises. Amen.

(PART 2)

Jesus taught that unwavering faith would be rewarded with heavenly answers. To overcome doubt, we must go deeper in our relationship with God.

READ: Ps. 52:8-9; Matt. 8:23-27; Mark 9:17-30; Mark 11:22-24; Luke 17:3-6; Rom. 4:18-24.
HEART ISSUE: In what areas do you struggle with doubt? What do your doubts reveal about your knowledge of God?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, please forgive my lack of faith. Help me grow in You so my faith in Your promises will also increase. Amen.
