Do you have a prayer that’s still in “wait mode”? Oh, me too!
I love the story in Luke 18:1 about the persistent widow. She pretty much said, “Jesus, I’m not leaving you alone until you give in!” She did not let up until he healed her. That takes guts, that takes boldness, and that takes determination.
And guess what? Jesus rewards that kind of gumption.
If you and I could develop that kind of persistence, we’d get a lot more prayers answered.
I’ve been guilty a time or two of giving up when I didn’t see God answer my prayer. You too?
But here’s the deal.
During the waiting, we need to keep praying.
Had the persistent widow quit being persistent, she wouldn’t have recieved what she had been asking for. Keep asking and you’ll eventually get an answer. Quit and you will never get an answer.
So I want to encourage you…
Don’t give up until God answers.
He may say yes.
He may say no.
He may say wait.
During the waiting, keep praying.
