“If You Have Faith”
In the effort to touch hurting people and to heal wounded people, we will face situations, problems, and obstacles that seem—and sometimes are—as big as mountains, O God.
For the sake of your kingdom and for the sake of those people, those mountains must be moved, and, since the Church is the Body of Christ, we must move them.
Give us just a little bit of real trust in you—trust that is born out of our real relationship with you and our real following of you—because just a little bit of real trust in you can help us to move those mountains—and nothing else can.
“And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, ‘Why could we not cast it out?’ He said to them, ‘Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.’” (Matthew 17:18-21)
