Prayers to Grow in Faith
(and the scriptures they are based on)

1) Faith comes from Jesus

Thank you Jesus that my faith comes from You.  You are the author and perfecter of my faith and you began a good work in me and You will complete it. By faith in Your name I can be strengthened. You are at work in me giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases You. Thank you that my faith can rest on Your power not on my abilities.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for
the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

3) My faith can be strenthened

Thank you God that I can be strengthened in my faith.  I want to encounter You in ways that build my ability to trust you and believe that Your word is true.  Please connect me with people that can strengthen and encourage my faith.  Please supply what is lacking in my faith. Thank you that You are faithful and will strengthen and protect me from the evil one.   Help me remember to pray in the spirit to build myself up in the most holy faith.
