Whatever you desire in prayer
Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
We gloss over the passage in our unbelief. And think that this concerns those things that are deeply spiritual and fundamentally we don’t believe god cares for our weak frames with an everlasting love. Why not wait on God for a few moments and think about the truth of the what it is saying. Whoever (that includes you) believes what he says will come to pass, it will happen. Now that seems a bit extreme, if you believe it will be done? Yes. However, the next line elaborates this. The NIV translates this as whatever you ask in prayer, but the KJV translates it as what you desire when you pray. This is the key – what do you desire when you pray? What are the desires of your heart? When in the place of prayer, believe what you say will come to pass.
