Here’s some good news for anyone who thinks they can’t scrape together ‘enough’ faith for God to answer their prayers. Jesus doesn’t even mention faith in Matthew 7v7 (http://bit.ly/1hsMKzw) Why? Partly because this ‘asking thing’ is much more about God’s faithfulness in giving than our faith in receiving. God’s faithfulness is one of the great themes of the Bible:
‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you’ declares the LORD’ Jeremiah 29:13
‘I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me’ Proverbs 8:17
How about relying more on God’s faithfulness as you ask God for what you need?
