11/13 Mark 11:22-25
Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. 23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. 25 But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too. ”
Jesus calls us to be real. We decide if we will forgive others and Jesus says we must. If we forgive others we have access to the Father. When we forgive we change. When we change we grow. Pray is part of growth. The more we grow the more we pray. If we know we are heard, then we pray with confidence.
