And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. – Luke 11:9
Persistence and patience; neither are characteristics that come naturally to most human beings. We want what we want. We want it now and we want it our way. When we dont get what we want, we think our prayers are unanswered. We cant imagine that the answer may be no. When we pray, God always gives to us in our best interest. He will provide, though it may not be exactly in the way we thought He should or on our time schedule.
We are told to keep on asking, keep on seeking, keep on believing and God will respond.
