Lord, I believe; help my unbelief! Mark 9:24
If you like Downton Abbey, you’d enjoy Lydney Park Estate in the English countryside west of London. The magnificent manor house was built by the family Wintour, then acquired by Benjamin Bathurst in 1719. Bathurst’s descendants still own the estate and conduct tours. To Christians, the Bathurst name is best known for his spiritual legacy of deeply meaningful hymns like this one: “O, for a faith that will not shrink, though pressed by many a foe, / That will not tremble on the brink of poverty or woe! / A faith that shines more bright and clear when tempests rage without; / That when in danger knows no fear; in darkness feels no doubt.”
If your faith is wavering, try offering that prayer, for it expresses our need for a stronger faith. Or adopt a prayer like the one in Mark 9:24: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”
Our confidence must firmly remain in God’s ability to do as He has said. If you’re facing a challenge today, take your stand on God’s promises and ask for a faith that will not shrink.
Lord, give me such a faith as this, and then, whate’er may come, / I’ll taste, e’en here, the hallowed bliss of an eternal home. William Bathurst
