A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

When will you have prayed enough? If you ask God once for some thing or on behalf of someone is that enough? Can God respond to one single prayer? Of course He can, but does He desire more? It reminds me of the child sitting in front of the TV at Christmas time watching every toy advertisement and saying, “I want that for Christmas.” Does a good parent make notes, and purchase everything the child wants? Hopefully not. The wise parent waits to see if the child really wants a particular toy, if they ask again, and perhaps repeatedly. Sometimes God waits past our impulsive, initial prayer request to see how much we really wanted what we are asking. If perchance, God responds positively to you first request, rejoice. If not, continue to pray. How long you ask? In the second verse of his hymn, “Jesus Shall Reign” Isaac Watts writes, “To Him shall endless prayer be made.” Really? “Endless?” The Psalmist wrote, “From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3). So keep on praying. God is not deaf, nor is He a disinterested parent. God is listening. A response is forthcoming.

Thanks a lot to you Dan and glory to God our Father in heaven and everywhere there and here. My wife died on the 8th March 1986. I prayed to God and He made it clear to me in His voice " I will give you a wife when I see that you are unable to serve me alone..." God has helpt me to wait and raise three children of 4,5,6 years of age.They are now grown-ups. Two are maried and have children, my grandchildren!! God has directed me to a lady now to whom He said that she would be my partner!!! I am and will need to remain in "ENDLESS PRAYING ...." Jesus and the Holy Spirit are in endless praying for US- Rom. 8:26,34. God bless you Man of God and Glory to God. Amen.
