Prayers to keep Faith: 15 Helpful

Prayers to keep Faith will help you to defeat unbelief, and strengthen your faith and trust in God.

Faith is the assurance that the things revealed and promised in the word of God is true, even though unseen, and gives the believer a conviction that what he expects in faith will come to pass.

Believing in a God we cannot see and believe that He is whom they say He is, requires faith. God notices our levels of faith and for us to keep our faith, we need to keep our eyes on God instead of our circumstances; this will help us to keep our faith strong during difficult times.

Also without faith, it is impossible to please God as it is written in Hebrew 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.”

When life is hard, faith is the comprehension or conviction that things will get better. Faith is deeply rooted in the belief that good things will come.

God is not a man that can change their opinions, break their promises, alter their plans, or lie to suit their purposes. God is perfect in all His thoughts and trustworthy in all His ways. If God has said it…He will certainly do it.

It is written in Numbers 23:19 (NIV): God is not human that he should lie, not a human being that he should change His words. Does He speak and then not act? does he promise and not fulfill?

Brethren, God is unchangeable and unchanging, let us put our faith in Him.
