Pray and Don’t Lose Heart

Baptism Participants 2018Have you ever been discouraged by unanswered prayer? Have you prayed for years for salvation for a loved one, only to have them continue to run away from God? I certainly have. But sometimes the Lord renews our hope by giving us a glimpse of what He can do.

We recently had the joy of witnessing the baptism of twelve new Christians. One of them was Ed, for whom we’ve prayed for six years. Another was Susan. With tears of joy streaming down his face, her father shared that he’d been praying for her for 14 years. Another man had been fleeing from the Lord for 25 years. Over and over again, we heard the results of faithful, persevering prayer.

So don’t give up, dear friend! Luke 18:1 reminds us: “Pray and do not lose heart.” God is faithful!

  1. Thanks, Hope. We’ve been praying for Wes’ bro for 40+ years. May God continue to work in his heart even though we can see anything happening. Jean

  2. Our Lord hears and actively, lovingly pursues every day! Thank you for the encouragement. Tears stream down our cheeks with these loved ones who have seen powerful answers to prayer.
