The Bible never teaches us to pray ‘for’ faith. Yes, seeking Him in prayer is a necessary part of growing faith in our hearts, but the seeking is to be on behalf of the desired answer, We grow faith by planting the ‘hopes’ of God’s word in our hearts, that is, the promises in the Bible that are pertinent to the answer we are desiring.
Even though we grow faith in our heart by planting God’s promises (and watering it by walking clean before Him in the Spirit), it is God who gives the ‘increase’ to the sown seed. God is the one who turns seeds into harvests. Again, let me make this point very clear; we do not grow faith independent of God. We do our part in obedience to what the Bible says, but the final moment when faith comes alive in our heart is determined by Him, and its life is given by Him.
Once faith is achieved, we are to release that faith verbally by either an asking prayer, or a declaring statement. The Bible only guarantees that prayers of faith will be answered, not just any prayer or declaring statement, no matter how needed they are.
Faith and fear cannot exist together. Faith is described in Hebrews 11:1 as being “certain of what we do not see.” It is an absolute belief that God is constantly working behind the scenes in every area of our lives, even when there is no tangible evidence to support that fact. On the other hand, fear, simply stated, is unbelief or weak belief.
As unbelief gains the upper hand in our thoughts, fear takes hold of our emotions. Our deliverance from fear and worry is based on faith, which is the very opposite of unbelief. We need to understand that faith is not something that we can produce in ourselves. Faith is a gift (Ephesians 2:8-9), and faithfulness is described as a fruit (or characteristic) that is produced in our lives by the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22–23).
The Christian’s faith is a confident assurance in a God who loves us, who knows our thoughts, and who cares about our deepest needs. That faith continues to grow as we study the Bible and learn the attributes of His amazing character. The more we learn about God, the more we can see Him working in our lives and the stronger our faith grows.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen!.
Praying with faith means, don’t try to hedge your bets. Sometimes–particularly in worship services and prayer meetings, where others can hear us praying–we try to “hedge our bets,” so to speak.
