Was Jesus Just Kidding?

by Berni Dymet

Matt 21:22 Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.

To be perfectly honest, for a great part of my Christian walk, at least the first half dozen years or so, I had a very low view of prayer; always too busy racing off doing this or that.  And anyhow, what difference is prayer going to make?

I knew I had no real "power" in my life, but that only meant that I had to work harder at it. Right?

Then I read this simple statement that Jesus made: Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. When I compared that with my prayer life - well, there was a gap. A huge, yawning chasm of a gap I have to tell you.

Two options really, either Jesus was kidding, or…

OK, maybe I'm not the smartest guy going round, but even I could tell - that something, something was drastically wrong.

Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. Matthew Chapter 21, verse 22. 

Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.
