I want anything is possible mountain moving faith and I'm praying for 40 days, asking God to grow my faith and to move the mountains only He can move. #Faith #Prayer #BlessingCounter #BlessingBloggers #2019

What’s your one thing?

Well, let me back up for a minute.

The other morning I woke up with this thought on my heart and mind…

End the Year with 40 Days of Mountain Moving Prayers

I’ve finally realized that the Lord often wakes me with a prompting because it’s one of the few times during the day that my head isn’t full of thoughts racing around like a toddler on a sugar high.

That morning’s prompt challenged me to pray bold prayers every day for the last 40 days of the year.

Which is why I began with the question … what’s your one thing?

What’s that thing you’ve been praying for as long as you can remember. And if you’re honest, it’s that thing you’ve prayed for so long you’ve started to lose hope.

I have one! Really, I have more than one. And I’ll bet you do too.

Maybe you’ve prayed for…

A loved one to know and love Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
The chronic pain that is limiting you to end.
The broken relationship with a parent, child, sibling, or friend to be healed.
The job opportunity that you long for to finally come along.
A church family where you can feel like you finally belong.
The healing of a loved one who needs a miracle.

Or maybe your prayer is for…

A stronger faith.
More hope.
Increased wisdom.
Or courage and strength.

Maybe your one thing is something else, some burden that’s always with you … just below the surface.

You need a mountain to be moved!

There is an account in the Gospels where Jesus had revealed His divinity to Peter, James, and John through a literal “mountaintop” experience. And as they stepped back into ministry, they were encountered by a father pleading for his son. Jesus challenge to them all was…

“You don’t have enough faith, I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew 17:20

I’ve always felt convicted by those words as I’m well aware that I fall short of having “enough” faith for the impossible.

Mark fleshed it out with a few more details…

“One of the men in the crowd spoke up and said, “Teacher, I brought my son so You could heal him. He is possessed by an evil spirit that won’t let him talk.  And whenever this spirit seizes him, it throws him violently to the ground. Then he foams at the mouth and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast out the evil spirit, but they couldn’t do it … Have mercy on us and help us, if You can. v. 17–18, 22

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve entered the heavenly throne room feeling helpless and hopeless praying, “Have mercy on me and help me, if You can.”

And every time, Jesus reply is the same…

“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” v. 23

Anything is possible! Even mountain moving.

Yet, like the father pleading for his son, my cry is …

“Lord, I believe. Please help me overcome my unbelief.” v. 24

Oh, how I want anything is possible mountain moving faith. I want to go into 2019 completely surrendered, watching for miracles. I want to fully trust that when mountains move in my life, it’s not the size of my faith but the greatness of God that made it happen.

You see, anything is possible!

But mountain moving faith isn’t about you or me…

Mountain moving faith is about trusting that God is sovereign and completely in control. Mountain moving faith is keeping our focus on Jesus, “Our faith comes from Him and He is the One Who makes it perfect.” (Hebrews 12:2 NLV)

Too often I feel like there’s something I need to do to have mountain moving faith. I need to spend more time studying the Bible or praying without ceasing. I need to be more obedient or do more ministry.

And although those things are all great and certainly bless my relationship with the Lord and His people, I wonder if maybe anything is possible mountain moving faith is as simple as asking, seeking, and knocking…

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

And that’s why I’m inviting you to join me for 40 days beginning this Thursday…

I want to ask, seek, and knock.

  1. I love this Deb ???? I can certainly use some mountain moving. Thanks for putting this together. I can’t wait!!

    1. Me too, Brittany! I always seem to write from my need. I don’t have all the answers but by God’s grace, I love the One who is the answer and He allows me to keep plowing through this intersection of faith and life blessing me with people who are willing to come along with me. Thanks so much for being one of those people. You bless me!!!

  2. I am so impressed with your obedience to God’s prompting especially at this time of year. You go girl. I will be looking for your two-minute posts every day. Thank you!

    I hate to admit, but I have stopped praying for a few mountains to move. Yes, I will join you and rekindle those mountain moving prayers I have set aside. God can move mountain I have experienced it, and when he doesn’t, he changes my heart, so it is still good to ask.

    1. Thank you, Maree! I am trusting Him to give me the words and the time. I just want to show up! Thank you for being willing to show up with me. Thanks, blessings, and big hugs!!

  3. I think it’s a God-incidence that my last blog post focused on moving mountains, and now you’re going to do this series of prayer with us, Deb! How great is our God, right? Looking forward to embarking on this journey with you.

    1. I saw that, Martha! I love when God gives us a similar theme! He is indeed a great God! Thanks for joining me! I’m excited! Blessings!

  4. I love this idea, Deb. I will be joining you on this prayer journey! You have been such an encouragement to me as I’ve started my blogging journey. I know we haven’t spoken to one another, but your example as a woman of faith shines through your blog and your social media. I hope God uses me in a great way like He has used you.

    1. Oh Yay, Chrystal, I’m so glad! Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement! I’m humbled and so blessed! Most days I still can’t believe God allows me to do this … I absolutely love it. Rev has retired and my kids tease me and ask when I’m going to join him but as long as God allows me this is where I have to be. It is a joy-filled pleasure. And a comment like yours just adds to the joy! Thank you! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. Wow. I needed that. I feel as though I’ve been praying for my one thing forever. 20 years seems like forever! Some days, especially this year, I’ve wanted to just say some prayers don’t get answered. This was exactly what I needed to hear.

    1. Oh, Stephanie, 20 years is a long time. I’m so glad you’re going to join us. I have several prayers I’ve lifted for what seems like forever. I’m so excited for all of us to lift our prayers to God with a renewed boldness in faith and watch for Him to move mountains that only He can move. Thank you so much for joining us. I am praying for you all! God bless you!

  6. Oh how I need this! I can’t wait to join you! I could really use some mountain moving ! I’m praying for my marriage and family to be restored.

    1. Jennifer, Thank you for joining us! I will be praying for you! God bless you!

  7. I am going to do this! It sounds so easy, 2 minutes, however I know it’s not…..Thank you for guiding us in a prayer journey that is reachable and a will certainly grow my faith. I lose faith on those prayers that don’t seem to be answered in MY time. The ones for a cure, or a person to join the family of faith, circumstances to change, I wait and wait and nothing, so I just accept what is. I am a regular church goer, even raise my arms high, I have Jesus signs all around my house, leading my kids to love Jesus yet where is my faith? I look forward to the 22nd!

    1. Yay, Camden! I’m so glad you’re joining us! I’m asking God in advance to help us all surrender our hearts and minds to Him and that we will see long-asked prayers answered and praise and glorify God as a faith community! God bless you!

  8. Good morning, Deb.

    I’ve been praying for a couple of mountains to move–one for years. I’m looking forward to joining you and look forward to your daily encouragement.

    Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving,

    1. I’m so glad you’ll be joining us, Tammy! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! God bless you!

  9. Such a great idea to test aside 2 minutes a day to pray and move our mountains. Yes, it is the busiest time of the year but I think that it makes it that much more important to prioritize prayer in our lives.

    1. Galina, Thank you so much for stopping to say, “hello’ and for letting me know you’re joining the prayer journey! May God bless you through the days ahead!

  10. Oh, yes. I am a firm believer in ask, seek, knock. I have prayed for my oldest son’s happiness for so long. It’s how I begin almost every conversation with God. He has so many blessings in his life. So many reasons to be happy, but I can see that he is not. I need some mountain-moving prayers for him!

    1. Laurie, a momma’s heart is always full of prayers for her children. I am praying for your son. May God bless you and grant you the desires of your heart! Blessings!

  11. Wow! I’m with you, Deb! Thank you for obeying God’s prompting.

    1. Yay! I’m so glad, Carlie! Blessings and hugs!!

  12. I’m so happy I found this post! I think it was meant to be. I’m coming in a day late but full of excitement and readiness to start praying mountain moving prayers!!!

    1. I’m so glad you are joining us, Brooke! What a blessing we have been given to be able to enter into God’s presence through prayer. He hears, He cares, and He answers! Glory to God!

  13. This article really blessed me. I need to pray more fervently. I let distractions get in the way. Please pray for me that I can follow Christ better and I’m trying each day to instill that in my two sons.
    Thank you I appreciate your prayers.
    Sincerely, Kristy

  19. Janie Polson says:

    This artical on moving mountains has reminded me just how little faith it takes to move mountains. Sometimes I forget, that it takes faith as little as a mustard seed. Praying in faith, asking for what we need prayers for and remembering to believe. My prayer request: Is for walking closer to God. Praising His mighty name. Let my health make a full recovery. To share Jesus with others who especially need it. God bless! AMEN!

  20. Claribel Albacite says:

    when i woke-up this morning, their is hunger in my heart. that i could not understand. as if i am far away from God. and as i was browsing, i stumbled by your message even if it was last November but still speaks to me. now I’m starting it. my 40 days. thanks for sharing.

  21. So, sadly I was not following you in November to be a part of the 2 minutes mountain moving prayers.
    Is there a place I can find them?
    I love following you and reading all your posts and would really love to be a part of this one also.
    Thank you for all you do…it has helped me in many ways.

  22. Judy Keith says:

    Greetings, I just came across your article today, 2/28/20, and it put excitement in my soul. Thank you so much for it. Faith, to me is “the” most important thing as witbout it we can do nothing. I pray this was a highly successful 40 days of prayers. Faith like our salvation is a free gift we just need to accept it. Blessings to you in your work for the Lord.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting, Judy! I am blessed by your kind encouragement. What an amazing gift we have through God’s gracious gift of faith in Jesus. His love overwhelms me … I so love telling others about Him and what He has done for us. God bless you!

  23. Janet Dean says:

    Thank you Deb for doing this for us. I don’t think it was a accident that I found this in time of my life. I need a mountain moved. I had a close relationship with my ex-daughter-in-law but suddenly she acting strangely and says I can’t come around or see my grandchildren. I’m so heartbroken.
    Janet Dean

    1. I’m so sorry, Janet. Family relationships can be so difficult. I’m praying for you and asking God to soften your daughter-in-law’s heart and restore your relationship with your family. Blessings and hugs!
