Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
It is there that the dejection ceases – for with the Lord comes hope; with Him you need not despair. The father said to Jesus, “If you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Christ responded, “All things are possible for one who believes.” The father then cried out the words of today’s verse…and the boy was healed. Later, Jesus told His disciples that their power and authority to heal, or to do anything else for Him, could only be maintained by prayer. They had to remain close to and in continuous relationship with the source of their strength.
So it is with you. Fear may overtake you as terror abounds in the world. Anxieties may press hard, but keep your faith strong in the sovereignty of God. Earnest and persevering prayer for this nation and for those close to you is the only way they can experience the hope and healing they need.
