Prayer of Faith and Petition
"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him."
The main ingredient for a prayer of faith and petition is “faith in God.” Many
Christians have faith but it is rooted in self, luck, the right formula or
strategy—but faith in God is not included.
Mark 11:24 says, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe
that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Jesus told them to have
faith in God. He did not suggest that they do it. He did not say it was
optional. He commanded them to “have faith in God”—and then what they said
without doubt in their heart would manifest.
Luke 17:6 says, “He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you
can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it
will obey you.”
We are to speak to the mountain—the devil and the obstacle, and tell it to move.
We need to stop talking to everyone else and start to tell the mountain to
cast itself into the sea—and believe it will happen because we have faith in
