Persistent Prayer

…Pray continually….—1 Thessalonians 5:17 NIV

Pastor E. M. Bounds said, “Importunate praying is the earnest, inward movement of the heart toward God. It is the throwing of the entire force of the spiritual man into the exercise of prayer.” Do not be discouraged if your prayer to God feels unanswered. Follow the model of the persistent widow and know that God hears you.

Dear God, I trust You and have faith that You know what is best for me. Your timing is perfect; all is well.
