Single Prayer Teachings: The Prayer Of Faith
The prayer of faith is something that is often talked about but often we don’t understand what it means or more importantly what happens when a prayer of faith is prayed. So often with prayer we look at it not from God’s point of view but from our own worldly point of view and judge it by the results we get. This though does not necessarily determine the faith behind a prayer.

In 2 Corinthians 5: 7 it says, 'We walk by faith not by sight.' and in Hebrews 11 it talks about, ‘faith being the substance of things hoped for but not seen.’ Therefore faith is believing beyond what we see and into what we hope for. For example if our friend is sick, we see that they are sick and so want to pray for them, so we pray through our hope that they will be made well. This is a prayer of faith, praying into what we hope for.

This though is where we can become disillusioned with prayer because there are times, for whatever reason, our prayer is not answered, or perhaps not in the way we wanted it to be. This though does not diminish the faith that was sown into the prayer that is prayed.

So today I want to encourage you not to get discouraged. Keep the faith, keep believing and persist in prayer. At the end of the day, prayer is not about us having our own way but about being in relationship with God and praying in those open heavens we looked at in the Prayer and Intercession series!
