Persevering in prayer is an exercise in increasing, developing your faith, devotion and dependence upon and in the LORD. It keeps us coming back again and again to Him. The alternative?  To “lose heart,” and spiral down into despair.-“Pray lest you lose heart.”-{Luke 18:1}. We persevere because He tells us to and in doing so it express love to Him as we follow. “He who has MY Commandments and obeys them He it is who LOVES Me”- {John 14:21-23}. We persevere as we know from Luke 18:1-9 He is not like the unrighteous judge who feared neither  man nor God who eventually granted the persistent widow her answer to get her off his back. In Luke 18 we are taught He is not like that judge, uncaring, insensitive, BUT He cares. So, today, though you feel weary perhaps, persevere in praying because…in doing so…

  1. It expresses Your LOVE to Him as you do as He says -{John 14:21-23}
  2. It will keep you from LOSING HEART -{ Luke 18:1}
  3. Because He CARES for you -{1 Peter 5:7}
  4. Persevering Prayer is a matter of “FAITH” which He values and the evil one oppose and which the LORD will seek for when He returns.

Persevere in prayer, because He calls you to, it express’s love to Him as you do. It is a Safeguard, it keeps you from despair. Know He cares for you and is an expression of faith in Him who is faithful and puts such a high value on faith in Him…. Persevere, keep on praying to Him… and Don’t lose heart. In the natural realm as the law of gravity pulls down, so in the spiritual realm failing to persevere in prayer will cause you and me to “….lose Heart,”  Thank God He is not like the unrighteous judge, read Luke 18:1-9 and note He cares for you. He shows it by telling the disciples if they fail to persevere they will lose heart, that is His showing them He cares about them emotionally and spiritually. He gives the comparison between the unrighteous, self-centered judge who is indifferent and insensitive to God and people, and Himself and His care, His sacrifice as HE IS ON THE WAY TO THE CROSS for them! He Cares enough to show them that He values faith in Him.
