Pray Without Ceasing

Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran

Dear Precious ones:

Most often, as you pray and do not get the answer; you get frustrated and end up saying,“ I’m not the lucky one- all my prayers are going unanswered”. This is a wrong misconception. Rather, you who love the Lord should pray without ceasing, until you receive your blessings. As the Bible tells us to, “…always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1). 

The only reason for the delay of your prayer is; God has something far better than what you are asking for. He has a plan and purpose for your life, which He will bring it to pass. The Bible affirms that “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). So, you should never give up, never get tired of praying and never fret for whatever your situation; instead wait on the Lord, for He has a greater plan for your life.
I want to share with you a remarkable testimony of a couple from Thiruninravur, Thiruvalluvar District: Yamuna and Govindaraj, were married for 7 years but didn’t have the blessing of children. Because of this, they had to face shame and humiliation. Though not financially strong, yet they underwent treatment in various hospitals, but all to no avail. Twenty years went by and they were shattered and hopeless. One day, as they were watching the Jesus Calls Tv program, they heard Dr. Paul Dhinakarn praying for childless couples. They immediately joined him in prayers. Later on, they also attended one of the meetings in Vanagram, at Jesus Calls prayer tower. And at the end of the meeting, they got an opportunity to get prayed personally by Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. God worked a miracle for them and they were blessed with 2 children. All praise to God!

My friend, you may also have been praying for a long time, for a particular need. And you haven’t received the answer, nothing has materialized yet. Don’t’ get discouraged. But pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and God will give a blessed reply to your tearful prayers. As you continue to pray for your need, especially the one unanswered; you exhibit your trust in the Lord. And the Bible very categorically says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” ( Isaiah 41:10). As you place your trust in the Lord, He will make all things work out for your good. You will witness the impossible situation turn possible. Therefore, never give up but continue to pray with a firm trust in the Lord.
Prayer:
Loving God, I seek your Grace to stay strong in my hard-pressed situation. For I know, you will surely answer my prayers according to your will. I believe you have a greater plan and purpose for me and you will accomplish it, all for your glory.

In the most precious name of Jesus, I pray. Amen
