“And hee said vnto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer, and fasting.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Mr 9:29 Can come forth by nothing, but by prayer. "Fasting" is omitted in the Revised Version, but placed in the margin. The faith which will be effectual must be a faith exercised in prayer. The work of the Church is still to cast out devils, the unclean spirits of worldliness, selfishness, greed, infidelity, lust, intemperance, Sabbath-breaking. These still defy the ordinary efforts and faith of God's people. We have faith enough for ordinary duties, for some giving, for prayer-meetings, for building churches; but there is a work which ordinary faith cannot do. How shall we get that higher faith? By prayer and fasting. By such an earnestness that we forget the needs of the body.
And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
