Pleases God

"This is good, and pleases God our savior" -Paul, 1 Timothy 2:3, NIV

What's so good and what pleases God? Prayer. God also says in Hebrews 11:6, "Without faith, it is impossible to please God." That's because prayer is faith in action.

"Father, we confess our lack of faith seen in our prayerlessness. Increase our faith. May we decrease but you increase in our lives. Teach us how to trust you more. Help us rely and depend on you for everything in life-not just the big things. Help us to live our lives by faith knowing that this pleases you and makes you smile. In the trustworthy name of Jesus we pray, amen."
