Pray that we will pray with God as our faith, that is, with God who has become our faith by mingling Himself with us, exercising God’s authority in our prayer and speaking to “this mountain,” telling the things that are frustrating us to go away (Mark 11:22-24; Zech. 4:7; Matt. 4:10a, 11a; Matt. 16:23a; 17:20; 18:19-20).
Mark 11:22-24—And Jesus answered and said to them, Have faith in God. Truly I say to you that whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says happens, he will have it. For this reason I say to you, All things that you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and you will have them.
Zech. 4:7—Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain, and he will bring forth the topstone with shouts of Grace, grace to it!
Matt. 4:10a, 11a—Then Jesus said to him, Go away, Satan!…Then the devil left Him.
Matt. 16:23a—But He turned and said to Peter, Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me.
Matt. 17:20—And He said to them, Because of your little faith; for truly I say to you, If you have faith like a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Matt. 18:19-20—Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens. For where there are two or three gathered into My name, there am I in their midst.
