Daily devotional: Pray with full faith in God

Scripture
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
Mark 11:24 NIV

Observation
Prayers spoken with doubt do not have the same effect as prayers spoken with total faith in God (v.22) and his power to answer our request. Our hearts must not be holding an offense against another so that God can also freely forgive us and hear our request (v.25). And our motives matter (Mark 12:40)!

Application
Test my motives, forgive all grudges, and pray boldly with faith that God is all powerful and will grant my requests. Don't forget to give Him the glory when He acts!

Prayer
Lord, help me to not doubt but to have full faith in You. Open my eyes to Your power. Show me any grudges or relationships that need mending so that nothing stands in the way of our fellowship together. Make my passion and my grief be what You are passionate about and what grieves You. May all my requests be in line with Your good and perfect will. Hear me and do amazing things, I pray!
