How tired is your faith?  I'm just wondering.  I know how life can be.  I know how the grind can wear you down.  But, it is imperative that we keep the faith.  It is imperative that we pray and not lose heart.  (Luke 18:1)  Sometimes we pray and we see nothing and then, we just shrug and move on.  We can't get disheartened about God's will in our families, homes and neighborhoods. 

I recently read the parable in Luke 18 about the woman who went to the unfair judge.  He wasn't a good judge, but she kept bothering him and eventually, he gave her what she needed - protection from her enemy, all because of her persistence.  God is NOT an unfair judge.  He's the perfect Father who leans forward when His children pray. 

He's not like our distracted, multi-tasking, spread-too-thin parenting selves. 

We cry out for change in our families.  We plead for strength for our days.  We intercede for His will to be done around us.  He sees our persistence in prayer.  Combined with His already present love for us, it compels Him to answer our faith.

He's listening.  He's making it happen.  We just need to keep believing.  We WILL see it. 

Andrew Murray once mentioned that we ought to be praying so constantly that there is a steady stream of answers coming daily. 

Fellow believer, please keep praying in faith.  Don't lose heart. 

..."However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
(Luke 18:8)
