The Language of Faith in Prayer
Faith is necessary for prayer and in studying the Word of God. Hebrews 11:6 (ESV) states, “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him”. When we come to God we must believe that He is and that He rewards them which diligently seek Him.
Faith is confidence and complete reliance on God through His Word. It is more of inward confidence, assurance, trust and reliance in God and all that He says. It means what the Word says is truly what God said and it is without corruption. It is taking God’s Word and putting it into action.
Faith is found in two areas in a believer, namely the heart and the Mouth. Faith begins with the heart. Paul tells us in Romans 10:10 (ESV) that “for with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved”. If faith is not in the heart it cannot proceed out of the mouth and be true faith. Paul still states in the scripture above that with the mouth one confesses and is saved. Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov 18:21). When words are spoken things are put into motion. This will either signify death or life. When we allow God’s Word to settle in our hearts, faith will be given birth. This will then guarantee the expected outcome when it is released through our mouths.
Faith has a language. This language needs to take dominance in our lives as we seek to grow in God and in moments of prayer. Faith always says that God is willing. He is willing to help us out in various issues of life that may prove to be hard. Faith always says nothing is impossible with God. It stands firm in the truth that God can. Faith always says that God is Able. This truth that informed with His Word should always be our shield as we walk by faith.
