Daily devotional: Boldly believe

Scripture
"'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes." Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"
Mark 9:23-24 NIV

Observation
I don't want to pray like this man initially did, asking God to work miracles if He can. I want to pray boldly and believe deeply in the God who created the universe and all that is in it, the God who loves me and can move mountains, who will respond and interact in the lives of those He loves and who love Him.

Application
Be bold in my faith, and ask the Lord to help me overcome my unbelief when necessary.

Prayer
Lord, I love you. I know You are all powerful, and that You work for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. So I stand boldly before You and present my requests, believing that You will do more than I can ask or imagine. And I pray that You will help me overcome my unbelief and spurn me on to ever increasing faith and the beautiful life that comes from participating in the Kingdom of God, both now and for eternity.
