When we pray it is not a question of can or will God help us? Prayer is believing and knowing God does and will help us, then trusting Him and His answers.
The Lord alone is our confidence. The object of our faith is the person, Jesus Christ, He is the one person we can totally trust in everything. When we put our confidence in Christ it transforms the way we live.
We must trust God even when do not understand what is going on in our life. Faith is trusting God even when we don’t have all the answers. He is the author and finisher of our faith!
This is why daily we must come to the throne of grace, in prayer and in God’s word and feed our faith, when we do our doubts and fears will starve to death.
If our trust, confidence or faith is in ourselves or another person, we are bound to fail and be let down, but when we put our faith in Christ, trust Him in all things we have already won the battle over our fears, through faith in Christ alone.
God’s word says this:
“Jesus answered them, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree but even if you tell this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will be done. And if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”Matthew 21:21-22 CSB
“For you are my hope, Lord God, my confidence from my youth. I have leaned on you from birth; you took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is always about you.” Psalms 71:5-6 CSB
“Such is the confidence we have through Christ before God. It is not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God. He has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-6 CSB
“This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked of him.” 1 John 5:14-15 CSB
