Show Notes:

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen. But when we fast, pray, and wait on God to answer our specific prayers, sometimes it seems like God is not listening. Rev. Percy McCray shares with listeners how faith is confidence in who God is, even when the outcomes of our prayers are different from what we would like. “We have got to continue to rely upon and trust that God knows best…there is a plan and a purpose that God has for us, and we do not necessarily get to dictate the outcome of that.”

He shares with co-host Wayne Shepherd the danger of misapplying Scripture when it comes to faith, “We know there are scriptural connections between faith and prayer and physical healing, but if we try to make the scriptures guarantee something that they do not, it will only ultimately hurt us in the long run and damage people’s confidence in their faith and in God.”

Rev. McCray also encourages us that, whatever trial we face, our trials do not define who we are. We are children of the Most High God. As we utilize the faith that God supplies to us, we continue to pray for healing. Healing may come on this earth or in the form of the ultimate healing of eternity. “Our role is to pray for healing. It is up to God whether He heals or not.”


  • “It is easy to feel like our faith is not working or God is not working, but feelings cannot measure faith or God.”
  • “God is not asking me to manufacture faith. He is not asking me to create faith. He is asking me to walk in the power of the faith that he has already imparted unto every believer.”
  • “Just because you have not experienced physical healing, does not mean your faith is not working.”
