"...If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
Matthew 17:20 (KJV)

Here, Jesus is telling his disciples their problem was unbelief and the need for much more prayer and fasting. Obviously, Christ is suggesting to them and us as well that, further prayer and fasting is what removes the unbelief that stagnates and blocks the Lords ability to respond to our requests. A "little" faith is all that the Lord needs to respond to our prayers but "unbelief" that the Lord will actually do what we are requesting thwarts the whole process. This verse tells me that the enemies of Christ are well versed in the spiritual laws and implications of shallow faith and ineffective prayers. They are under the authority of Christ and not the authority of man and will respond accordingly. It also tells me that I need to be ever closer to my heavenly Father in prayer and fasting if I'm to have any chance of waging battle in the spiritual arena.

8/19/2014, 7:22am by "MockingBird": We are given a measure of faith at birth It is my responsibility to grow in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. I can only do that by being in His word daily. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That grain of mustard seed is equipped to grow. my prayer is that I do not stay a baby Christian I have been with the Lord 35 years and I have made many mistakes and had many victories !!!! God has brought me a long way . I Praise God for His patience and longsuffering He has showed toward me for His names sake. I Love Him more than I did from the first !!!!

Areas where we need faith can be grouped into Physical and spiritual.For somebody to do exploit in life, he needs faith. For somebody to perform miracles, set the captive free, conduct deliverance service s , receive his healing, even praying to God, he needs faith. For somebody to make it to the end, he needs faith. That is the reason why bible says without faith, it is impossible to please God.
