Prayers for faith and trust in God will strengthen and give you confidence amid life uncertainties.
Faith can be defined as being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Hebrew 11:1). Faith is an expression of hope that goes beyond the conscious mind.
It is written in Hebrews 11:6 (NIV): “And without Faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” So, without faith, we cannot please God.
We have so many reasons to trust in God. We can trust in God because with God all things are possible (Mark 9:23). God knows the desires of our heart and He has the best plans for us also.
We can also trust in Him because He is worthy of our trust (Proverbs 3:5-6). God knows what is best for us but to fully embrace what He has planned for us, we have to put our faith and trust in Him.
