9:23 If thou canst believe - As if he had said, The thing does not turn on my power, but on thy faith. I can do all things: canst thou believe?
Mr 9:23 If thou canst believe. The question is not whether Jesus can, but whether the afflicted father can. Can he have the needful faith in Christ? Faith is the great need.

Jesus Christ is talking about the importance of faith for anybody to receive from him.
Ben Weaver's comment on 2011-02-20 19:52:25:
How does one believe to receive from the Lord? Believe can refer to various applications. To believe in Jesus for salvation; means to rely on his promises, as we actively receive them into our lives. In our V.23, Jesus is saying, "All things are possible to him that believes" for them to happen. I have read that Drs. say faith is a contributing factor in healing, possibly any faith. However, a solid basis for faith i.e. the power and promises of Almighty God is more ehhective. I believe that the faith Jesus had and entrusted to us, (Jude 1:3) should be received and spoken into action in order to be truly effective in any work of God.
