Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Matt 17:
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Faith, belief in Christ but really more than that. Total belief. Total willingness to do what He says, putting all aside for Him. Few people in history have demonstrated that level of commitment but the works that have been attributed to them are legendary. Peter and Paul have miracles attributed to them. God is said to have worked through Francis of Assisi. John Wesley relates a number of healings in his writings that he attributes to the Spirit. And certainly the growth of the Methodist Church in the 1700 and 1800s could be said to be miraculous.

How much faith do I have?
Am I willing to place my total hope and faith in Jesus?
Am I willing to go all in, and see how God will work in and through me?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Thank you for your love.
Thank you for Jesus sacrifice.
Thank you for sending your Spirit.
Strengthen my faith
Help me to see what I am capable of if I put all my faith and trust in You.
Amen
