Isaiah 46:4 says, "even to your old age and grey hairs, I am He who will carry you" some prayers are answered quickly, some take longer and more perseverance, but NEVER should we give up praying. Even those not yet answered I am certain will be according to God’s will because He is faithful to His word. God's word is always a good place to start. Lining up what you are praying for with God's word is a great beginning. In nearly 40 years of praying, here’s 3 scriptures that have really encouraged me:
1. Luke 18:1-8: Jesus tells this parable encouraging persistence in prayer,
and not give up or growing tired of asking.
2. Matthew 7:7-11: Here Jesus is encouraging us to ask the Father God
for what we need because He wants to answer our prayers.
3. Psalm 5:3: This verse encourages us to lay our requests before the Lord and wait expectantly. Not doubting but sure God will hear us.
This gives us a great way to approach praying:
