A while ago I tweeted the following:
Let your faith be as bold as your prayers. If you are praying for greater, you must also believe in greater. #GodCanDoIt #PurposeOverFear
Allow me to elaborate.
Sometimes we pray for something that we think is near impossible or perhaps we pray for something that feels unattainable based on our current situation. While our prayers are asking for something greater, we unfortunately don’t always exercise the faith to back up what we are asking God. We pray the words but allow our minds to simultaneously be preoccupied with doubt in God’s ability. (Take some time to read James 1:5-6.)
Let the words you pray be the words you believe.
