Matthew 21:21-22 (ESV) – And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
It comes down to If. If we are able to keep our capacity to believe; if we can continue imagining all the ways our faith allows us to do, be, live, have, and give better; if we can regard prayer less as bottled wishes being cast into the ocean and more as the way we communicate with the Lord, boldly articulating our needs and desires and being assured that he hears and cares. Wisdom leads us to know what we should pray for; our faith tells us that we’ll receive it.
