When You Feel Like Quitting
George Mueller was a man of great faith and great prayer. You know, I read that he once prayed for a friend’s salvation for more than sixty years. And it was at Mueller’s funeral, that friend for whom he prayed for all those years finally gave his heart to Christ. That's amazing! It’s easy for us to look at the results of our prayers and think, "well, this isn't working." Listen, my friend, when it comes to prayer, two words: don't quit! Don't give up just because you can't see any visible results. Jesus said “men are always to pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1). Have you thrown in the towel on something you used to pray about? Pick up the towel and get back on your knees. Pray according to God’s will, and pray with confidence. God promises that He will answer us at the right time with a powerful response from heaven. Now that’s real hope.
