Seeds of Prayer

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

1 John 5:14

When you plant a seed in your garden, do you get discouraged the very next day when you don’t see any growth? Do you walk away and abandon your garden altogether? No, of course not.

That same God lives inside of us. 

Believing in His power and believing in the power He has placed inside of us is a daily fanning of the flame. How do we fan the flame?
