"Let the mountain be remove."
Few years ago, I heard about a story of an orphanage shelter who was located in a remote area. There was a mountain in front of the house. The house keeper wished a certain mountain would be remove to make her easier to go to town to buy things they needed. One boy said, Well, Sister Rose, Jesus said that if you have faith, you can say to the mountain "be move" and it will move." The house keeper was stunned at how the boy was talking about faith. "Yes, darling. That is right. Let us pray about it," she replied.
Every night, all of those children in the orphanage shelter would gather around and pray that the mountain be remove. They hold Jesus to His words. And they've been praying heartily for this for a few weeks.
Then one day,the housekeeper was awaken by the children's joyful shout, she went to see what was it that they were shouting about. She was so amazed at what she saw, the mountain that they have been praying to be removed was being bulldozed.
Later that day, she learned that a certain construction was on going on that area.
"He (Jesus) replied... "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will be move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
