Prayer Focus - Instability
James 1:6-7 “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.”
The Word of God illustrates doubt as being like the surf of the sea that is driven by the wind. It teaches us that if we pray with this similarity, we should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Acting in the opposite of what we say is being "double-minded."
Identify what causes you to have any measure of doubt when you pray for something specifically.
The type of request
It won’t get answered
Prayed for it already
Feelings of guilt or unworthiness
God’s Divine Will
Other (not listed)
Study and then write your interpretation of these Scriptures as it would apply to you and today’s prayer focus.
Matthew 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”
Reflection: Page 29
Study the passage of Scripture focusing on the consequences of instability. Think about your personal level of wavering between what you pray for with faith and later feel or act differently about it.
Focus your prayer today on your insecurities and ask the Lord to increase your faith and stability.

The little green peas often served as a side dish contain 9 grams of protein per cooked cup (240 ml), which is slightly more than a cup of milk.
What's more, a serving of green peas covers more than 25% of your daily fiber, vitamin A, C, K, thiamine, folate and manganese requirements.
Green peas are also a good source of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and several other B vitamins.
