Gospel : Matthew 17:14-20
“Nothing will be impossible for you”
“Lord, have mercy on us ! We come before you with the following prayer petition..” the long list goes on . Each day, individually and as a community we bring someone to Jesus, fervently asking for his intervention. Sometimes we get upset when we think our prayer is not answered. And we want to know why . “Because of your little faith”
Jesus always looked for faith in us. We need to have faith and trust in God and this can happen if we spend more time in prayer. Let us pray persistently to grow our “mustard seed” faith , believing that nothing will be impossible with God .
