Vital Signs - Thursday, February 27, 2020


Our Father in heaven has made a promise to be available to talk and has given us direct access without being but on hold . This has all been made possible through Jesus his Son.


Despite the remarkable access we have, it can be easy to become discouraged when it feels like our prayers aren’t being answered.


Jesus warned us very specifically that we will sometimes have to "keep praying and not give up", telling a parable about a persistent widow who kept hassling an uncaring judge until she received her reward. Elsewhere, he told his disciples to ask, seek and knock, and, in the original Greek, these verbs were written in the present active imperative tense, which means that they literally mean: Keep on asking, and you will receive… Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. There is a sense of habit, of repetition, of a reward for prayerful perseverance.


Faith is God’s gift to us, faithfulness is ours to him. God’s "suddenly" happens slowly.


Why not pause now: are there requests that you’ve given up on or stopped praying about? God would you increase in me the gift of faith and help me persevere in my praying today?



““Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
