    A Christian who is walking with God can pray for anything according to the will of God and it will be given to him. But the Christian must have faith and faith is based upon the written word of God so any requests not harmonizing with God's word will not be granted by God.

    Brother bill mc:

    mark 9:23 jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

    what is it that we have to believe? what's inside this belief that make all things possible?

    ephesians 4:4 there is one body, and one spirit ......

    ephesians 4:6 one god and father or all .....

    christ is the body, the father (spirit< truth< life) dwells in the body (of christ).

    john 5:26 for as the father hath life in himself; so hath he given the son to have life in himself.

    john 5:19 .....the son can do nothing of himself .....

    christ is the body of the father, everything is done by the father through the action of the body. his son, christ.

    all things are possible for christ, because he has the father indwelling him.

    through the operation of the cross, we can now have the father (spirit< truth

    It means that if one has faith in God that He hears and answers back when one is asking something from Him then God will definitely answer back. So have faith in God that He will give you anything you ask for.

    Please read Matthew 7:7-11.

    Bill,

    In Mark 9:23, Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.



    So Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.



    But look what the man says in Verse 24, and this is a beautiful, beautiful picture of how we ought to approach the Lord.

    "And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief."



    Nowhere in the Bible does it challenge someone to come up with their own faith so that Jesus can perform in your life. That's the cry of a person. I believe, but Lord Help my unbelief because I can't believe. Only God can give me that. Help my unbelief!



    It is always the strong point in a person's life when they can approach the Lord, even as a nonbeliever, even if you don't understand the things of God, you can still approach Him and say "Lord, if you are real, make yourself real to me!"



    I mean, as a nonbeliever, as somebody who doesn't believe in God, you are asking God to do it all because you realize your human inability to figure Him out.

    But how are you going to find God? How are you going to know about Him? You know, when you come to Him and say, help my unbelief, I am empty, magnify yourself to me, show yourself to me, because I don't have the ability to know, and He reaches down to those people to manifest Himself.

    Hope this helps!
