Do you want to learn about persevering in prayer? Have a good talk with a soldier’s wife.
A yellow ribbon hangs on her heart as she watches and prays.
Giving up is not in her vocabulary.
To pray big, I need a military mindset.
Supplication means to ask with earnestness, with intensity, with perseverance…. Do you, do I exhibit this patient determination in our prayers for others? How easily we fall short! In the levitical legal code the fire on the altar was to be kept burning perpetually; it was never to go out (Lev. 16:13). As God builds stamina and grit into our spirituality, we today must learn to burn the eternal flame of prayer on the altar of devotion.”
Richard Foster, Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home, page 197
Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you;
seek and keep on seeking and you will find;
knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you.
Matthew 7:7, AMP
Lord, help me to keep on asking, seeking, and knocking.
