On Exercising our Faith -Isaac Watts-

“In pleading also we are required to exercise faith in the promises of the gospel, faith in the name of Christ Jesus our Mediator, and faith in the mercies of our God according to the revelations he has made of himself in His Word. We are called to believe that He is a rewarder of all who diligently seek him (Heb.11:6); that he is a God who hears prayers and will bestow upon us what we seek, so far as is necessary for his glory and our salvation. ”
