Persevering Prayer


“One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.” Luke 18:1 NLT

When we don’t see the immediate answers to our prayers, it’s easy to get discouraged and quit.  But Jesus taught us to persevere, to not lose heart and to always pray.  Pray whether we see the results or not.  This takes supernatural faith to believe that God is at work, even when we can’t see it.  In those situations I remind myself that there’s a blessing given to those who even though they don’t see, still believe (John 20:29)

What are you believing for?  If you aren’t seeing it happening, I encourage you to hold on.  Don’t lose heart.  Keep going.  Confidence in prayer comes as we trust in Him who is always good, loving, faithful and just.  We can’t see the whole picture.  We see things “darkly” through a veil.  But we can trust He is working all things for our good.

What is the one thing you are going to persevere in prayer for?  Leave a comment and let me know.  Let’s pray for each other to persevere!

Jesus, I need You to give me supernatural vision and faith to believe for ___________________.  I trust that You are at work, even when I can’t see the results I’d like to see.  My hope is in You, not in circumstances changing.  I thank You that You are always loving, gentle, faithful and trustworthy.  I surrender ___________________________ to You.
