Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Faith!"

Priest trains Green Lantern to use his power ring without the Central Power Battery's guidance in an unknown space sector. Priest explains that he was a Green Lantern once, but he resigned to pursue a "more spiritual calling." He also explains that the Green Lantern of the space sector they are currently in was considered a god by its residents. Hal insists that he needs his Power Battery restored to recharge his ring, although Priest says otherwise. The teacher gives Hal his Battery but says that Hal needs to find its power essence elsewhere. Priest sends him to sub-sector 82, where Hal finds the battery's power source inside a satellite. Suddenly, a group of Dreadnaughts, the same species in war with the yellow-skinned aliens, attacks him. Green Lantern fends off against the hostiles, and they claim that he is desecrating the "symbol of their god," referencing the former Green Lantern. Hal's ring reaches its limit of energy, and his life support starts to fail. While the Dreadnaughts escape, Hal approaches the satellite, grabs the green-glowing rock, puts it inside the battery, and recharges his ring with seconds to spare.

Hal returns to Priest's, who claims Hal didn't need his power battery, as the one he had was a fake. Priest grabs the bag where Hal carried his battery's fragments and rebuilds it. When Hal charged his ring with the fake battery, he was tapping directly into the source of his power ring instead. Priest walks away, saying Hal has much to learn, and that in a thousand years he might be ready to discard his crutches.
