PERSIST . . . . . Colossians 4:2 Have you ever grown tired of praying for something or someone? Paul says, “Devote yourselves to prayer.” Vigilance demonstrates our faith that God answers our prayers. Faith shouldn’t die if the answers don’t come immediately, for the delay may be God’s way of working his will in your life. When you feel weary in your prayers, know that God is present, always listening, always acting—maybe not in ways you had hoped, but in ways that he knows are best.
