Believers give up praying too soon, too quickly. They pray and then when they do not immediately get an answer, they stop praying and they lose hope.
If we go to Jesus in prayer we must be serious. We must not just go for what we want or what we want to ask for. We must go to Jesus in prayer because we want to be with Him. He is our Lord and our Master, He is our Father, our Keeper, our Shepherd. He cares for us, and we must care for Him; we must care to spend time with Him. If we go to Him in prayer we must go expectantly and we must wait on Him, like a child goes to his parent. The only one who can really help us is Jesus. But if we give up too soon then we might not receive what we asked for.
Many people ask Jesus for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and they don’t receive it, then they give up. Jesus rewards those who diligently seek Him, those who are serious. If we are sick or if we are in need, we need to pray, keep on praying, keep on knocking, because Jesus said that if we keep on knocking the door will be opened to us; we need to keep on praying, keep on hoping, keep on believing, keep on trusting Him. He will answer us if we do not give up. And when He does answer us we must give Him the glory; we must thank Him and we must testify. we must tell the world that Jesus Christ is alive.
Do not give up. Jesus said that those who endure until the end will be saved, those who keep on praying and expectingly believe, they will receive.
Keep on praying, do not give up. Jesus will answer your prayer if you are serious.
May Jesus bless you.
