Prayer for Reliance on God to Practice Daily

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
(Matthew 11:28, NIV)

Freedom comes when you say, “God, I’m turning it all over to You. You know my desires and what’s best for me. I’m choosing to trust You today.”

The Battle Belongs to the Lord.

Daily we need to stop and be still so we can focus on knowing God, and realize His place in our daily lives. First thing in the morning, stop and say, “God, I rest in You. I know You have my world in the palm of Your hand.” Remember, our battles are spiritual battles. The people in our lives aren’t our enemies, the situations in our lives aren’t our enemies; the forces of darkness are. When you choose to be still and know that the Greater One lives on the inside of you, you are saying to the whole world, “I trust thoroughly in God. He is my Defender.” When you choose to believe in Him, you will enter into His rest. So go ahead, and allow yourself to enter into His rest. Remember to use your prayer language.

Our Fears and How to Escape them Through Faith

"I wish I had great faith." These are words that almost every Christian has said at one time or another. But faith is like a muscle, which must be exercised in order to become strong; just wishing cannot make it happen, but prayer can help.

Christians are to believe God, not only for salvation but for everything. Rather than a spiritual "plateau," faith is actually a process that involves increasing degrees of trust throughout life.
  • Little faith hopes that God will do what He says,

  • Strong faith knows that He will,

  • Great faith believes that He has already done it.
