Praying in Confidence. It's a game changer.

My mom came to me one day telling me about this amazing woman she heard pray. She said she prayed in confidence.

So, one day I set out to try it. And you know what? It is amazing.

Why not pray in confidence? It's no longer a "Please God, if you wouldn't mind doing this for me" kind of prayer. The prayer turns into, "God, I know you are amazing, and I know you can do this for me, so I'm going to give thanks for what is to come!"

Instead of asking, you are believing you have received it.

While I was praying about the funds to go to China this past year, this changed everything.

Originally it was, "God, please provide this money for me to go."

But when I prayed in confidence, it turned into, "God, I know I am called by you to go on this trip. Thank you for providing the funds for me to get there!"

I prayed and believed that I had received it.

My verse for this trip was Mark 11:24. It goes like this: "I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you've received it, it will be yours."

I encourage you today to pray, believing that you have already received it. It will change everything.
