ABCs of the Word – U

Pam at Grey Like Snuffie hosts ABC’s of the Word to focus on a scripture in which the week’s letter is highlighted.

This week’s theme letter is U

Immediately the father of the child cried out
and said with tears,
"Lord, I believe;
help my unbelief!"
Mark 9:24 NKJV

This father’s cry is fascinating – while he asserts his belief that Jesus can heal his son, he begs for help with any unbelief which might keep him from receiving the blessing he needed.

So many times we have a belief in Jesus Christ which allows us to be called ‘Christian’; but only the Holy Spirit can give us the belief which will produce true Christian perspectives and behavior.

Here is a song which expresses a prayer for true belief.

I Believe, Help Thou My Unbelief

Written By Bill & Gloria Gaither

I believe help thou my unbelief
I'd take the finite risk of trusting like a child
I believe help thou my unbelief
I walk into the unknown trusting all the while

I long so much to feel the warmth that others seem to know
but should I never feel a thing I claim him even so

I believe, help thou my unbelief.
I walk into the unknown trusting all the while
I walk into the unknown trusting....

Here is a recording of the song on YouTube:

Carrie, this is so good as it goes along with my quiet time readings from Ephesians-there is so much for us if we only believe and trust. should not that mans prayer be a daily prayer for us?
