HOW LONG SHOULD WE
PRAY FOR A REQUEST?
Praying the other day I questioned the Lord if I should continue
to pray for some requests over and over, such as for family and
friends. I do not just want to become repetitious in my praying.
Then I felt in my heart that
there are things that we pray the prayer of faith and leave it
with Lord, but there are also requests we are to continue to
daily lay at the feet of our Saviour.
This is the Word He directed
me to : Luke 18:1-8 (KJV) 1 And he spake a parable unto them
to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2
Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God,
neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and
she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he
would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself,
Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow
troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming
she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge
saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day
and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you
that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of
man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
It seems to me that God is
telling us to keep praying, keep believing and KEEP THE FAITH
because we will see the answer as we pray the Will of God which
is the Word of God.
It took my mother 23 years
but she prayed both sides of the family into the saving grace of
- Acts 16:31 (KJV) And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
God bless you and
