Related Sequence – Power of Faith and Prayer

NIV Matthew 17:19-21 (The disciples tried to heal a boy with a demon.) 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, Why couldn’t we drive it out?” 20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”       (Notes: With faith all things are possible)

NIV Mark 9: 23-24 (Jesus spoke to a father with a son with an evil spirit that asked to help them.) 23 “If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” 24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”              (Notes: Shows how even in his believing, he knew he was a sinner and could not do it himself.)

NIV Mark 11:22-24 (withered fig tree) “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.            (Notes: If you pray to God, and have faith, all is possible in prayer. God listens and answers all prayers.)

NIV Matthew 21:20-22 20 …How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked. 21 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the seas,’ and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

NIV 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.       (Notes: All have problems. God will provide all we need. May not be what we want, but it is what we need, what he wants us to have.)

(John and Peter have no gold, but heal a crippled man.)

NIV Acts 3:2 Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple … 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. … 6 Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong.


(The Lord’s Supper)

NIV 1 Corinthians 11:23 …The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took break, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or drink; or about your body, what you will wear, Is not life more important that food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 28 And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin, 29 Yet I tel you that not even Solomon in allhis splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

NIV Matthew 6:31 So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat or what shall drink?” or “What shall we wear?” 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary an burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Rest for the Weary)
