And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Believing is the first thing required when becoming a follower of Jesus. That same faith must also be present as you seek direction and help from him. You may not get immediate answers, but you have to have faith that you will, no matter how long it takes. Someone who has faith will pray with boldness and determination, fully confident that God will come through for them.
