The author and finisher of our faith. - Hebrews 12:2

All Christians have faith, but some of us have but little faith. He who gave us what we have can increase it; and He will if we apply to Him, plead with Him, and wait upon Him.

We need more faith, to enable us to escape the many dangers that are in our path; to do and suffer the Lord's will with patience; to hold fast the faithful word which we have been taught; to grow in grace and holiness; to exercise forgiving love towards those who have grieved, offended, or injured us; and to honour God, by believing His promises, trusting His providence, expecting His interference, being active in His service, and leaving our concerns in His hands, to be arranged, directed, and brought to pass.

We are encouraged to pray for more faith, by the nature of the request, and the design with which we ask it : by the precepts of His holy gospel : by the examples of faith set before us in the word : by the promises which God has given : by the well-known character of our God : and by the blessed results which must follow from having such a prayer answered.

Author of faith, I seek Thy face,
The work of faith in me fulfil :
Confirm and strengthen me in grace,
To do and suffer all Thy will :
From hell, the world, and sin secure,
And make me in my goings sure.
