Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”
Without prayer you will be powerless. Plain and simple. Jesus has called us to build His Kingdom, without prayer there will be no vision, no insight of what God is doing in your life. Without prayer, there is no communication! I couldn’t imagine not talking to my parents only twice a week. God longs for a personal relationship. Just like you are.
Why be persistent? When you pray a prayer request over and over, it’s not to remind God. He doesn’t need to be reminded! It’s to remind yourself who the source of your answer and all your needs is.
If every prayer you ever prayed were instantly answered, two things would be true. Prayer would become a weapon of destruction in your life and you’d never think about God because He would become a vending machine.
Every time you get results all you’d think about is the blessing. He wants you to think about the blesser!
Ever since the age of 19 I had prayed for a soul mate. And He gave me a vision that night while I was in bed. Tears started to flow when I had seen the vision and even though it lasted for a few seconds, it had burned in my memory and I’m so joyful that the vision is coming to pass. I’m twenty eight but I never let go of that promise.
Prayer is a faith builder. In the waiting God begins to grow you even more. So don’t let go of your prayers, keep on trusting in the blesser.
