Patience or Persistence

Sometimes our prayers feel like they are having no impact. God is seemingly slow to respond and we begin to get frustrated. What do we do then? Do we persist in the same prayer or do we sit back and wait patiently for God to act - or is it a bit of both?

Psalm 37:7 - Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him...

Luke 18:1 - "Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up." (Read the whole parable here)

Living in Grace

Isa 62:6-7 I've posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem. Day and night they keep at it, praying, calling out, reminding GOD to remember. They are to give him no peace until he does what he said, until he makes Jerusalem famous as the City of Praise. (MSG)
