Now He was telling them…that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart. Lk.18:1
When I read that I am immediately convicted to pray for many of my ‘impossible requests’. These are people I know who are so broken and stuck in their own ways and situations that seem so insurmountable and overwhelming. And I’ve prayed and prayed before and nothing seems to have changed. I tend to give up and move on to pray for other things or just not pray much at all.
NEVER GIVE UP. Listen to hear if God would have you change in any way what you are asking for, but persevere in prayer.
“shall not God bring about justice for His elect, who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?” vs. 7
“when the Son of Man comes, will He find (this kind of persevering) faith on the earth? Vs. 8
Be open and earnestly seek any ‘prayer modifications’ God would have you make, but KEEP ON PRAYING.
Luke 11:10 For everyone who asks (and keeps on asking), receives; and he who seeks (and keeps on seeking), finds; and to him who knocks (and keeps on knocking), it will be opened.
