In our discouragement over unanswered prayer, the Lord reminds us, “Don’t quit! Keep praying, keep Believing, keep persevering and keep coming before me with your needs. I hear you and I care. I will answer at the proper time … if you don’t quit.”
You see, the Lord loves persistence; He loves it when we dig in and choose to trust Him, no matter what the circumstances say. He loves it when we refuse to throw in the towel on the prayer need that He put in our heart. When we pray according to His will, we can have great confidence that He will answer us when the time is right (read 1 John 5:14-15).
Have you thrown in the towel on prayer? Have you given up on that dream, that need, that desire God placed within you? Pick up the towel, and get back on your knees. If your prayer is a little off center, ask God to refine it so that is in complete accordance with His will.
