Home / Uncategorized / 04-17-18 Loved One’s Devotion THE NECESSITY OF PERSISTENT PRAYERS…

My awesome, wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  “In a certain town there was a judge who did not fear God…there was a widow in that town who kept coming…’Grant me justice against my adversary.’ “For some time, he refused. But finally, he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, YET BECAUSE THIS WIDOW KEEPS BOTHERING ME, I WILL SEE THAT SHE GETS JUSTICE…”

This unjust judge was moved to give justice to this very persistent woman, Jesus used this parable to demonstrate the importance of our persistent prayers

“…and the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God BRING ABOUT JUSTICE for his chosen ones, who cry out to him DAY AND NIGHT? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, HE WILL SEE THAT THEY GET JUSTICE, AND QUICKLY…” (Luke 18:2-8)

Some people teach that we only have to ask God once for anything we need but Jesus is teaching us that we need to pray day and night until the Lord answers…

“…you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I WILL BE FOUND BY YOU,” declares the LORD…” (Jer. 29:12-14)

WE NEED TO LEARN TO SEEK THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEART…

Notice: […We must understand that the bible says:] “…you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” !!!] That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh
