“Everything is possible for him who believes…”

In Mark Chapter 9 what a striking comment that Jesus makes- “Everything is possible for him who believes”! How often have I prayed prayers like “But if you can…” No wonder Jesus said ” ‘If you can’?” Do I really know that Jesus is who He said He is? Is He not the Lord God and Creator?! Lord let me be like that father and exclaim “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” The disciples had good intentions of helping a father whose son was “possessed by a spirit” but couldn’t help the father and then an argument occured between them and the crowd and teachers of the law. The disciples ask Jesus the reason for why they could not help the boy is telling….”This kind can come out only by prayer.” Prayer, it seems to me, is really about relationship with Jesus. I think Jesus’ is saying that our quality of relationship with Him is just as important, if not more, as doing what He tells us to do. What is the quality of my relationship with you Lord? Do I really talk to you like you are my life, my wonderful Savior? Are my prayers just rote and ritual like some magic formula? Like the father exclaimed “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
