“It can not be stressed enough how important belief, trust, and faith are in making prayer an effective mechanism versus a hollow ritual. The way a person lives their life is often indicative of the degree of faith and trust they possess. A person’s actions also betray the truth of their beliefs – not the religious affiliations they proclaim, but what they truly believe in the deepest part of themselves.
The simple truth is that a little belief goes a long way toward seeing what you would like to see. Effective prayer depends on belief. When Jesus spoke of belief, He was referring to a belief in the process He was teaching, not of belief in any particular dogma or doctrine. This process Jesus was speaking of is the natural process of God, or the Universe; and the principal component in its operation is belief.”
