Luke 18:1-8 (KJV) 18 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Be encouraged! Be persistent! When we don't, at first, receive our prayer request, it is important to remember that giving up is not an option. Sometimes we have to ask more than once. Not because our Lord did not hear us the first time, but do we have the faith to believe that He will answer. Do you have enough faith to persist? Be encouraged friends, God loves His children and there is no good thing that He will withhold from us!
