Faith

Mark 9:23-24
Jesus said to him…”Everything is possible to one who has faith.” Then the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe, help my unbelief!”

When a boy suffering from chronic convulsions is brought to Jesus’ disciples they are unable to heal him. So the boy’s father turns to Jesus who heals him. Don’t we all relate to the father’s response? How often do we believe…but still question? When asked by his disciples later in this passage why they couldn’t heal the boy, Jesus tells them that more prayer was required. When we are centered in a life of prayer where we cultivate an inner silence open to hearing God’s voice…we begin to be in tune with what God wants for us. Our desires become one with God’s desires. Then we can simply say with confidence and peace, “Your will be done.” How much time do we set aside each day for prayer…a time of silence to cultivate our relationship with God?
