If only we can get over this idea that faith is praying and waiting for God to do something about the situation. If we can understand that is hope and not faith we would have taken a great leap into the reality of God’s power. We can then move to praying to receive a definite plan from God which we will execute.
If we move from just saying by the grace of God things will change to showing what the grace of God has taught us to bring about that change, we will hit a home run.
Those instructions we receive through praying form the bedrock of true faith which comes by hearing. Our prayers will then have created a point of entry for light and through our actions under the influence of the spoken word will bring about great results.
