And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Unbelief

Father, all things are possible for me if I believe. I do believe; help my unbelief! I am grateful to the one who has strengthened me, Christ Jesus my Lord, because he considered me faithful in putting me into ministry, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor, and an arrogant man. But I was treated with mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief, and my Lord’s grace was abundant, bringing faith and love in Christ Jesus. I give thanks to you that my unbelief did not nullify your faithfulness. I will not waver in unbelief about your promise, but will be strengthened in faith, giving you the glory. I will see to it, that I have not an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes you. For I long to enter your rest, resting from my works, just as you did from your own works. Thus I will make every effort to enter that rest, so that I may not fall by following the same pattern of disobedience. In the glorious name of Jesus, Amen.
