Prayer

Prayer

God’s goal for me is to pray and have faith in him. I should talk with God about everything. I should be in complete agreement with God. That is all that matters in any given moment.

My job is to embrace a life that is steeped in God. Every thing is about God and what God wants right now.

When I am completely absorbed with Jesus, nothing is impossible. When I know what God wants, God can make it happen. God can produce figs on a tree out of season. God can move a mountain into a lake.

God is God. God can do anything. Nothing is impossible with God. When I am absorbed and in sync with that, I can know what to say and be confident my Master Jesus will make it happen.

As they left Bethany the next day, he was hungry. Off in the distance he saw a fig tree in full leaf. He came up to it expecting to find something for breakfast, but found nothing but fig leaves. (It wasn’t yet the season for figs.) He addressed the tree: “No one is going to eat fruit from you again—ever!” And his disciples overheard him.

In the morning, walking along the road, they saw the fig tree, shriveled to a dry stick. Peter, remembering what had happened the previous day, said to him, “Rabbi, look—the fig tree you cursed is shriveled up!”

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.
