Daily devotional: Have faith

Scripture
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20 NIV

Observation
Often I pray, hopeful that the Lord will answer my prayer but without boldly declaring my request in full faith. I would think that if anyone understood faith it would be the disciples, but at least it is heartening to see they struggled too.

Application
Have strong faith, and boldly present my requests to the Lord.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for today and the upcoming holiday. Thank you for taking care of me, my needs, and for listening to my prayers. Please strengthen my faith. Teach me and show me how to walk in the faith You talked about in Matthew 17:20. I love you!
