Pray believing.....

.....that God's gonna hear and answer our prayers!!!

I fell and hurt my knee about 15 months ago.  
It's steadily gotten worse and some days I can....could.....barely walk.
About a week ago, on a Friday, I prayed and told God that He was gonna have to work a miracle in my knee.  Then, on SONday morning, I asked our SS teacher to pray specifically for my knee.   I also put my request on a prayer card to be prayed over by our Prayer Ministry team.

Well, guess what?
Although I still can't bend it as well as I can the other one.....
the pain isn't there.  Before, if I walked too much thru stores with concrete floors, I could barely make it back to the car and would have to lift my leg into the car after I sat down.  This past Saturday, Pappy and I went shopping at  two different stores and my knee didn't bother me at all.

You might be wondering why I'm sharing this.
Well....it's because I have a confession to make.
Even though I've seen God answer prayer after prayer....
I doubted that He would heal my knee.
For some reason....
I started praying....
believing that He would heal my knee.  
I spoke it out loud....
even told Jess and Pappy and our boys that God was going to heal my knee.

I shared this with our SS teacher....
and he said something that really hit home with me.
He said that sometimes we "belittle God" by praying but not believing that He's gonna answer our prayers.

For that, I had to ask God to forgive me!!!

Mark 11:24 
I tell you, you can pray for anything, 
and if you believe that you’ve received it, 
it will be yours.


In HIS Most Precious Lve....and with mine, too!!!

Blessings,
Deb

  1. I really needed to hear this today as I have struggled with stepping out in faith on a healing I believe is coming from God. Speaking it before seeing it! Trusting God's Word and standing firm on it. Praising God for your healing....here in my corner of the world.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
