Keep On Praying
Keep On Praying:
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. 2 “There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. 3 A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’ 4 The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, 5 but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’” 6 Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. 7 Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
1 Thessalonians 5:17
17 pray without ceasing
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
17 He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
