In the gospel of Mark, we see a powerful example of the importance of prayer in our lives. In chapter nine, Jesus rids a young boy of an evil spirit. The father, distraught and overwhelmed by his son’s condition, calls out to Jesus, “But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us,” to which Jesus replies, “If you can?… Everything is possible for him who believes.” Often times we forget that if we cry out to Jesus for help, he will fight for us with zeal and passion. If we truly believe in His abilities to heal, we will see, hear and feel the transformative powers of His touch. Later that day, Jesus and the disciples go indoors where they ask him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” And He replies, “This kind can come out only by prayer.” Here, we see Jesus call attention to the best way to create change: prayer. A practice so powerful, it is healing. Indeed, a lifestyle that we must believe makes a difference.
One of the best ways you can partner with us is to join us in praying for the growth and prosperity of our ministry. Through continued prayer, people are healed, lives are changed and we are moved to believe in a world where justice, love and hope are within our grasp.
