I want to give up praying
When we don’t receive an answer to prayer, we often give up praying. Some people believe that praying the same prayer over and over is a demonstration of a lack of faith or a lack of trust that God has heard our prayers. Are we trying to force our will versus God’s will when we persistently pray the same request? Jesus addresses persistent praying.
2 Peter 3:9
- M. Bounds wrote, “Persistent praying never faints or grows weary. It is never discouraged. It never yields to cowardice, but is lifted up and sustained by a hope that knows no despair and a faith that will not let go. Persistent praying has patience to wait and strength to continue. It never prepares itself to quit praying, and it refuses to get up from its knees until an answer is received.”
1 Thessalonians 3:10
Key Points of Guidance
