Ask God to Increase Your Faith - 8.21.20
Women's Prayer Team | Week 15
Prayer changes things. That's easy to say, but sometimes hard to believe and internalize. Yet, it's true! Prayer really does change things by moving the heart and hand of God! We are called "believers" because we are supposed to believe what God says in His Word! Have you ever felt like a "believer" who struggled with unbelief? I think we all have from time to time. But the good news is that our faith can grow! In Luke 17:5, the apostles asked Jesus to increase their faith. If they needed more faith, so do we! PRAYER TIP # 15 - Ask God to Increase Your Faith "And the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." - Luke 17:5 How do we increase our faith? First, we follow the apostles example and ask the Lord to increase our faith! We must go to the source of faith and ask Him to grow our belief in Him! The second thing we can do is act in faith. Stormie Omartian says in her book, The Power of a Praying Woman, that "when we step out in faith, God increase our faith...acting in faith begets more faith." We can also increase our faith by reading the Word of God (Romans 10:17). 3:30 Prayer Challenge - Plan to call someone to pray with them over the phone about whatever is on your heart!
