Read Mark 8:1 through 9:50
People sometimes find themselves facing an impossible situation. It could be a marriage broken almost beyond repair, a child addicted to drugs, a health crisis, or a financial debacle. When facing such a crisis, Christians know God can do the impossible, but they may wonder if He’ll take action to help them.
It’s natural for people to sometimes struggle with such thoughts.
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24).
This father looked to Jesus with only a small hope that Jesus could do something for his child. Jesus challenged the man to believe. The father responded with an affirmation of his faith and a prayer that Jesus would help him overcome any remnant of unbelief.
Sometimes Christians are fearful of admitting that there is unbelief in their hearts. How can spiritual people have doubts?
But when doubts come, you can respond like the father in this account—reaffirming your faith in God and praying that your doubt will be transformed into faith.
Thought for Today: God will do the impossible.
Quicklook: Mark 9:17–27

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
