Passing On Faith

My sweet sister, Shari from Leaving a Legacy, is starting a new series today.  I encourage you to check it out, you will be glad you did!  Her series is The Power of a Praying Parent, from the book by Stormie Omartian.  I have read this book and love it.  It has blessed my family in many ways.  Please take a moment to check out Shari's series.  Click HERE.

We pray.  We teach our children to pray.  But do we have faith that God will work?  Do we teach our children to have faith God will work?  It is easy to say a prayer.  But believing, having the faith that He will move, that is where the miracle lies.

When you pray, have full faith and confidence 
that God will perform a miracle.

If we teach our children to pray, but do not teach them to have faith, it is like teaching them hollow words.  God wants us to believe.  Believe that He can and will move the mountains in our lives.  Do you believe?  Do you pray and drop it at His feet knowing He will move?

And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; 
for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, 
you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it 
will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." 
Matthew 13:31

Pray knowing God will move.  Show your children what faith truly is.


  1. Thanks for this!! Needed this. I went to your sister's page and am now following her on FB, Pinterest and via Email! What a great series.. looking forward to it!!

  2. Power of Praying Mom and wife are two of my daughters favorite.. Studying prayer right now myself...getting lost of great prayer and faith verses.. I agree prayer without faith is useless. It is faith that empowers the prayer... if we do not believe; we can never receive...Blessings! Great Word!

  3. lots of great prayer verses...and yes, I guess I could get lost in the goodness of so much the Bible has to say about prayer too.. lol. Blessings!

  4. Love Stormie's books. Such wisdom! Have you read Mark Batterson's book The Circle Maker? That is another good one.

  5. 3dlessons4life, I haven't read that book but have heard great things about it!

  6. I really needed to hear this message tonight! It's amazing how much time I spend in prayer.. and yet how much time I then still spend worrying about things. *I* am not the one in control! Like you said: we need to BELIEVE that God will perform a miracle :) ...Speaking of miracles (because I can't believe I finally finished it!!) I just posted a list of over 55 Christian athletes playing in the Super Bowl Sunday, if you want to check it out :) it took *forever* lol :) here's the link:

    Hope you enjoy! :)

  7. Everything is really possible if you do believe on him.
