A Prayer For Genuine Faith

“Father, through the knowledge of Your Scriptures, through the application of its truths, and through the power of the Holy Spirit we can resist the enemy of our souls.  Our faith is tested which is of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire, so that it may be proved genuine, and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.  Faith that is not tested is faith that cannot be trusted, so help us to see that when the enemy is persistently prowling You are giving us opportunity to prove our faith to be genuine as we continue to recognize Satan’s ways and resist his influence in our lives.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
