Sticking with It

today's reading.
Luke 11:1-10   Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples..."

the blog.
Immediately after the Lord's Prayer, Jesus points out to the disciples the importance of being persistent in our prayers. Pretty logical really. If something is important to us, shouldn't it be a recurring request? My answer? Absolutely, yet oddly enough, my actions don't always reflect persistency when it comes to certain specific prayer requests. I'll pray about something a time or two and if I don't perceive a response in fairly short order, sometimes I give up. When I do that, I lose out, and I'm pretty sure that I've had prayers that have gone unanswered because of my lack of diligence. :( This is definitely an area I need to work on.

So what are some of the benefits of being persistent with specific prayer requests? What's your experience been concerning persistent prayer for a person, an outcome, maybe even a special event? Tami W.
