Faith comes only as a gift from God. We can neither deserve, nor earn it through any merit of our own. To find it, we must seek it whole-heartedly. Once we receive it, we must trust in God, work to maintain and develop our relationship with him, and rely on him for its continuance – every single day. 


For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9; NIV).

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you (Romans 12.3; NIV). 

To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, …to another faith by the same Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-9; NIV).

[From] Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours (2 Peter 1:1; NIV).

Day after day
You see 
My need for you,
My weakness,
And my vulnerability.

Day after day
You take pity on me,
And give me faith.

Thank you so much
For your inestimable gift.

In the name of your beloved Son,
