Second key idea from last Sunday

Here is the second of five key ideas from my message last Sunday.

Jesus commands us to have faith that our prayers will be answered. In Mark 11:22, Jesus says, “Have faith in God.” That is an imperative. Two verses later in Mark 11:24 Jesus gives another imperative, “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it.” He calls us to believe that our prayers will be answered. Miracle-working faith is difficult to understand at times and controversial for many Christians, but we cannot let that stop us from obeying the clear command of Jesus to have faith that can move mountains.
