“Pray without ceasing.” (1Thess. 5:17)
“It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in prayer until we obtain an answer; and further we have not only to continue in prayer unto the end, but we have also to believe that God does hear us, and will answer our prayers. Most frequently we fail in not continuing in prayer until the blessing is obtained, and in not expecting the blessing.” — George Müller
How many times have we prayed for something pretty regularly at first, but when the answer didn’t come, we gave up and stopped praying? I believe we are all guilty of doing that. We feel that if the answer didn’t come within a reasonable amount of time, then it must not be coming, therefore, there is no use in continuing to pray.
If you are praying according to God’s will, don’t quit! Don’t give up! Satan might be fighting the answer, therefore, you must keep pressing on until victory comes!
