Mark 9:23‭-‬26 – Help My Unbelief!

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.”

Mark 9:23‭-‬26 ESV

So, this father cries out to Jesus,” help my unbelief!” and Jesus performs a miracle in front of him. In a study recently, I was reminded that unbelief/lack of faith obstruct can obstruct our prayers. We may not even recognize the miracles all around us that will help our unbelief if we aren’t looking. Ask the Lord in your prayers to help your unbelief, and to open your eyes to the miracles around you. Would your belief increase if you saw miracles before your eyes through answered prayers?
