'Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to him must believe that he exist and rewards those who seek him.'
The beginning point of faith is the belief tht God exist, not just a God that people created. he is the only one true living God which has the power to answer people prayers, work miracles out of us. what we must do is just to have faith in God and believe that he will work something out of us. without faith, whatever prayers are meaningless as faith is the keypoint of all works. of course, sometimes we may have doubts in the word of God. but lets not let our faith be shaken. let our faith grow stronger by prayers and through the word. sometimes we may not understand what the bible is trying to convey to us. even i admit. lets just pray that by faith, God may convey to us the word through other means.
'Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.'
