Why must we pray with perseverance?

There is power in prayers. God, through the universe, only gives 3 answers to sincere prayers:
1. Yes!
2. Not yet
3. I have something better in mind

Inspiration: the persevering widow (Luke 18:1-8)
“Of all the mysteries of the prayer world, the need for persevering prayer is one of the greatest.”
If we are discouraged, pray.
If we have lost heart, pray.
If we don’t know the way forward, pray.

Even great spiritual leaders like Jesus also prayed everyday.
Jesus prayed …
@ his baptism (Luke 3:21-22)
@ the choice of the 12 (Luke 6:12)
before Peter’s confession (Luke 9:18)
@ the transfiguration (Luke 9:28)
when Jesus taught his disciples to pray (Luke 11:1)
@ the Last Supper (Luke 22:32)
on the Mt. Olives (Luke 22:41)
on the Crpss (Luke:23:46)
Thus, remember to pray everyday.

  2. […] Pray. Pray once I wake up (with the sunrise or earlier). Pray before sleep to ensure a good night sleep. Pray to reflect on our day and things that we appreciate, otherwise easily taken for granted. Pray to express our gratitude and our request to The Universe. Pray when I feel doubtful and insecure. Pray when I am happy and excited. Externalize our prayers in words and visuals. Pray with perseverance. […]
