A Prayer to Help Us Believe
By Kristine Brown
“Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’” (Mark 9:24 ESV)
When my husband and I first stepped into pastoral ministry, I struggled with the sheer number of needs we heard about every day. People carried so much hurt, and they brought their situations to us, wanting us to pray for them for healing, deliverance, or provision. I remember my stomach tied in knots, thinking about the responsibility of praying for such desperate needs. What if God didn’t answer the way we wanted? I worried my prayers would be ineffective, so I chose my words carefully and then wondered if I’d said the wrong thing.
