Where is the Unbelief In My Prayer?
re: your statement:
"God, if it’s your will, you can ...’ This is unbelief masked as faith, it will not work. Friends, first before you pray, find out what God’s will is (Rom. 12:2), which we can know because we have the mind of Christ (I Cor. 2:10, 16) and He’s revealed His will through His Word. Know what He’s promised and then ask in faith believing it will happen (Mark 11:24; I John 5:14-15).... Just Saying!" [ Read Orginal Article Here ].
'God, please use me as a living sacrifice to be a witness to Jesus Christ and to lead others to you as it is in your will'
Where my dear juli is the unbelief in my prayer?
The will of God: Eccl 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Remember: Matt 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
There is no unbelief in your prayer. Witnessing for Christ and leading others into a relationship with him is clearly the will of God. You are praying according to that. My statement said 'if', meaning the person praying is unclear if what they are praying is within God's will. My suggestion is to first confirm it in the scriptures (just as you did) before praying and asking for it. This makes it a request based on faith in what God has already supplied by grace rather that a request based on a wish... Does that help clarify my statement?
