Kanaan Message for Today
Pray daily in the words of the disciples, ‘Increase our faith!’ A strong faith is something we often lack. Yet in order to perform the tasks God gives, faith is essential. In all your work and activities, yes, even in your prayer life, everything depends on having faith. Faith determines whether your prayers and actions will be fruitful. You may offer many prayers to God, perhaps even repeating the same request again and again. However, if you do not count on God having help prepared, nor expect it to come, then nothing will happen. If you are lacking faith, ask for it and count on God answering. He will produce faith in you. Then, having blessed this first step of faith, God will inspire you with further prayers of faith (Luke 17:5).
