Maybe it is also an area you can relate to. You may pray for the salvation of loved ones, healing for friends or families, provision, opportunities or open doors and so on but you neither see nor hear of any result.
You may resign your will after praying from months to years. You plead, you wait, you doubt and you quit. Don’t cave in and give up.
In the book of Luke, Jesus spoke of the parable of the persistent widow. She pleads her need to the judge and the judge was worn down with her persistence. He gave in and the widow got her breakthrough. Know that God has more compassion than the judge, He is the all knowing and powerful God who will not trial us more than we can bear.
It is God who we can put our trust. We ought to always pray and not lose heart. Jesus says so and we know that He knows best.
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
