Mark 9:14-29

The story of the healing of the boy is long with great attention to detail. However, the message is simple and very clear. Faith and trust make all things possible, and prayer is the means by which one grows in both. Even the disciples struggled.

My unbelief outweighs my belief. Fear is always in the way. Help me to let go and grow in faith, trusting you because you are the way.
