Jesus’ disciples were astonished to find that the fig tree he had cursed had withered up right from the roots. (Mark 11:20)
Jesus used the opportunity to give them a few prayer pointers.
1. Have faith in God. (Mark 11:22)
2. Ask in prayer.
3. Believe you have received the answer.
4. It will be yours.
5. Forgive others when you pray.
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them." (Mark 11:23, NIV)

Prayer- When we disclose our wants in prayer, may we our wills resign; that not a thought may enter there, which is not wholly thine. Amen. (Joseph Dacre Carlyle)
