BELIEVING PRAYER

Mark 9:17-29

February 25th 2018

Listen to message

 

Intro – Prayer is a powerful thing when the person praying is a believer. Our text today teaches us several things about prayer and faith.

 

I. When we pray we should not doubt God’s ability to answer our prayer. (23)

A. Jesus taught this to His disciples. Mk.11:22-23

B. Nothing is impossible with God. Lk.1:37

C. Salvation is proof of this truth. Mt.19:24-26, Jn.6:44,  Acts 26:16-18

D. Never doubt your salvation. Rom.10:13, 1Jn.1:9

 

II. Faith is not necessary in the one being healed!

A. The cripple at Bethesda. Jn.5:8, 13

B. The blind man. Jn.9:6-7, Jn.6:35-38

C. The demon possessed man. Mark 5:5, 12

D. The widow at Nain. Lk.7:13-14

E.  Sometimes it is the faith of others that brings about the healing. Mk.2:5

 

III. Prayer based on faith can heal people. (29)

A. Faith is revealed through a surrendered will.

1. The prayer of faith does not demand, it seeks God’s will.

2. True faith says, “Thy will be done”.  Mt.6:10

3.  Jesus taught this by example. Jn.11:42 Mt.26:42, Heb.10:9

B. Faith is trusting God to do the impossible. Prov.3:5-6 

 

Con. God sends us trials so we know that we need to trust and depend on Him.
