One of my greatest struggles is unanswered prayer, maybe you can relate. You ask God for something specific, and you pray for years without results. You remind the Lord that He’s powerful. That your request is a good thing. You plead. You wait. You doubt-Maybe He doesn’t hear you, or maybe He isn’t so powerful after all. You quit asking-for days or month. You feel guilty about doubting. You remember that God wants you t take your needs to Him, and you tell Him your requests again.
We may sometimes feel we’re like the persistent widow in Jesus’ parable recorded in Luke 18. She keeps coming to the judge, badgering him and trying to wear him down so he’ll give in. Bus we know that God is kinder and more powerful than the judge in the parable. We trust Him, for He is good and wise and sovereign. We remember that Jesus said we “always ought to pray and not lose heart” (v.1). So we ask Him, “Summon Your power, O God; show us Your strength, O God, as You have done before” (Ps. 68:28 NIV). And then we trust Him and wait.
Pray on, then, child of God, pray on; This is your duty and your task. To God the answering belongs; Yours is the simpler part-to ask. Chisholm. Delay is not denial so keep praying.
