Saved by Faith
The work of the ministry is to change unbelieving sinners into praying, believing saints. The value of faith cannot be disputed. God has placed tremendous importance and value on faith and that is why we need faith in order to be saved. So, when we think about the great importance of prayer, we find faith standing right beside it.
By faith we are saved, and by faith we stay saved. Prayer introduces us to a life of faith. Paul declared that the life he lived, he lived by faith in the Son of God who loved him and gave Himself for him. Therefore, Paul walked by faith and not by sight.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
