Mark 11 22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. I just don't understand what this means. I mean this sounds like you get whatever you ask for as long as you have faith. You will now say that it doesn't mean this, but what does it mean? I mean Jesus encourages us to pray, but at the same time I cannot imagine that we get everything we ask for as long as we have faith, this sounds like faith is something magical which makes us get whatever we ask for. :? So what does he mean? I mean Jesus also does not say that we only get what the Father also wants, he says whatever WE desire. I really don't understand this. I feel like praying makes absolutely no sense until I am able to figure this out.
