Jesus taught His disciples much about prayer. He instructed them to ask in faith, believing that God would answer. He said,

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says” (Mark 11:23).

Faith really can move mountains of fear, pain and unbelief. Exercise faith as you send your specific prayers heavenward. Really believe that God will grant your requests for yourself and others. Then stand back and watch Him act. A word of caution, however: A mountain moved into the sea would make huge waves!

When you pray, carefully consider all the ramifications of having your request granted. Only pray for what you really want, or when God answers you may find that you have gotten more than you bargained for!
