‘Why could we not cast it out?’ 29He said to them, ‘This kind can come out only through prayer.’ Mark 9:14-29 There are times when our words fail us. Nothing we say can help the situation. The words we use to invoke the Holy Spirit upon our lives are being attacked by words of discouragement. That’s when prayer is at its best. Take it to the altar, let it go and trust God.
I’ve been under attack all week and especially today. Knowing peace is near is keeping me stumbling along the path.
Praise God that we can in fact rest in His peace because of our faith in Him.
other translations say “prayer and fasting.” Fasting is VERY powerful in helping to get prayers answered. It is a weapon for our use.
Yes indeed, probably not used often enough because many misunderstand its full purpose.
