Mark 11:24 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
24. Therefore In view of this readiness of God to make your faith true the instant that it exists. I say I declare this high privilege of the faithful soul. Unto you Who have attained full communion with God. Believe that ye receive them Trust that God is already granting while ye pray. And ye shall have them The gift shall commence as soon as the faith is complete. While ye trust that it is being granted, it is being granted. The prayer and the answer are coexistent, as instantaneous cause and effect.
