Prayer and Faith (1)
Whenever a study of the principles of prayer is made, lessons concerning faith must accompany it. Faith is the essential quality in the heart of any man who desires to communicate with God. He must believe and stretch out the hands of faith for that which he cannot see or prove. Prayer is actually faith claiming and taking hold of its natural, immeasurable inheritance. . . Faith does the impossible because it lets God undertake for us, and nothing is impossible with God. How great—without qualification or limitation—the power of faith is! If doubt can be banished from the heart and unbelief is made a stranger there, what we ask from God will surely come to pass. A believer has granted to him “whatsoever he saith” (Mark 11:23). Prayer throws faith on God and God on the world. Only God can move mountains, but faith and prayer move God. (Purchase Book)
