Pray Big Prayers of Faith

Today's Scripture

“But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life” - (1 Timothy 1:16).

Thoughts for Today

Prayers of faith have great power. They can conquer the unconquerable, overcome our obstacles, accomplish the impossible, and vanquish the enemy. The apostle Paul said that God is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). Yet God does not want us to spend our big prayers on selfish desires. God wants us to pray big prayers of faith for things that will glorify Him.

In the book of Jeremiah, we see God speaking to His people through His prophet. God said, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3). God spoke these words through Jeremiah during a dark point in Israel’s history.

Nebuchadnezzar had already sent the Babylonian army to Jerusalem. The city was under siege. Hostages had been taken to Babylon. These were some of the worst times God’s people had experienced since their days of slavery in Egypt. This predicament was of their own doing, yet God loved them and provided for them. In return, they turned their backs on Him by placing their trust in political messiahs, placing their security in material possessions, and compromising their God-given values. Their hearts had become calloused and their ears had become deaf to God’s Word. Yet even in their lowest point, God was still calling and appealing to His children to return to Him.

He was telling them through Jeremiah that even at that late hour it was not too late to call out to Him. God was ready to bring restoration to His people for His glory.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father God, thank You for Your loving mercy and patience. Thank You that it is never too late to come to You. Help me to come to You with big prayers of faith that will glorify You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
