Never Give Up Praying

June 3rd, 2019 · by Tom Stuart · Prayer, Relationship with God

“Never give up praying. And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful.” Colossians 4:2 CEV

When answers to our prayers tarry, while the temptation to give up increases, it’s a great encouragement to read these words of the Apostle Paul reiterating the teaching of Jesus to “always pray and never give up!”

It emphasizes the fuel for persistent prayer is thanksgiving. Praising and thanking God, no matter what the circumstances, releases faith in His faithfulness to hear and answer us.

“Prayer is …choosing gratitude until we are grateful, and praising God until we ourselves are an act of praise.” Richard Rohr
