A Prayer to Grow Strong in Our Faith By Kristine Brown
“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God.” Romans 4:20NLT
I once knew a precious elderly woman at a church we attended. She was strong in her faith. So much that I’d watch people get up from their seats, walk over, and ask her to pray for them— before, after, and even during service. And this woman knew how to pray! Her passion for the things of God was evident. She’d press her eyelids closed and wrap her hands firmly around yours, committed to not letting go until God said so. I saw her as an example of what our faith should look like. I’d love to have faith like hers. Yet I’ve hesitated to pray for stronger faith because I’ve also wanted to avoid the growth pains associated with it. Thankfully, God gives us inspiration for our faith journey in Romans chapter four. Through this powerful passage, God is teaching me to view my life experiences as opportunities to develop a deeper faith in him.
