"Pray in Faith"
“Pray in Faith…”
Many of you are friends on varied “social networks” and know that I’ve ask you to be praying for a young boy, Eli.
(Go to http://www.dalemoore.tv to join me on Facebook, Google+, several Twitter accounts, download my personal app...yes, I have an app, etc.)
Eli is the 5 year old son of a friend.
He just received a diagnosis of cancer in his jaw.
The response of the medical team was rapid and aggressive - a worrisome development in itself.
I ask that y’all pray for him.
Pray as the Lord leads.
Some will have the faith to ask the Lord to intervene.
Some will have the faith to command the cancer to leave.
Some will have the faith to intercede for the family.
All, and more, are needed and are evidence of the truth that we need to Body to function as the Lord designs.
Therefore, Lord, increase our faith through your Word...
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;
15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.
14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.
- in faith
- in belief
Lord, we believe.
Help our unbelief.
All things are possible to those who believe.
With God, all things are possible.
With God, nothing is impossible.
If we have the faith of a mustard seed, nothing shall be impossible to us.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Be healed Eli by the blood of Jesus…
