“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 9:24

TODAY’S WORD…

“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

– Mark 9:24

 

REFLECTION…

Lord…help my unbelief! Everyone who comes to the Saviour for help has need of offering this prayer. We may or may not readily admit that, at times, we doubt. We believe…but. We may find ourselves praying…but not fully believing. That is why we need to ask for Jesus’ help…and He will hear our cry and He will graciously send His Spirit upon us, and our doubts will be lifted, and our faith restored.

Faith makes us all-powerful because, rather than relying on ourselves, we rely on Christ Jesus. Through faith, then, we become sharers in God’s omnipotence. Faith is a gift of God, and we, especially at times when we are wavering, should ask humbly and tenaciously: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” and also request what the Apostles themselves did: “Lord, increase our faith!” (Lk 17: 5)

 

PRAYER…

My Lord, I believe – I have faith.

I do put my confidence in You,

but I fear that my faith is not as strong as it should be.

Lord, heal the shortcomings of my faith.

Give me the strength and grace to put all my confidence in You.

 

Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!

Lord, increase my faith!

I love You, Lord; thank You, Lord.

    Hi …Good morning. I normally receive the reflection of the day, but for some reason it has stopped. This could possibly be because I had a problem with my computer….it got blocked.

    Could you kindly re-instate me on your e-mailing list?

    I await your reply.

    Many thanks and God bless you always….these reflections truly start my day on a good noteJ
