Pray, Believe And Receive

Key Verse

“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24

Text — Mark 11:24-26


When a baby is born, she is expected to cry. The doctor and the nurses will do everything possible to make sure the baby cries. This cry is very important because it is a sign that the baby is healthy. Dr. Yvonne Bohn explains that the baby’s first official cry shows that the lungs are working properly. The cry indicates the breathing ability of the new born baby. And once the baby starts breathing on her own outside the mother’s belly, she will never stop till death.

Prayer is the spiritual breadth of a new born friend of Jesus. Like the new born baby cannot do without crying and taking in air, the believer cannot do without prayer. Prayerlessness is a sign of spiritual illness in the spiritual life of friends of Jesus. Jesus wants us to pray. It is the only way we can tell Him our desire. But we must pray believing that whatever we ask in prayer, we shall receive.

You must be willing to pray. A fervent prayerful life is a mark that you are spiritually alive. Your joy and encouragement to pray should rest on the promise of Jesus that you will receive all you ask from Him. Take your desires to God in prayer. Believe and you will receive.
