Prayer and the Golden Rule
Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. - Matthew 7:7
For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. - Hebrews 3:14
God calls for persistence, also known as perseverance, over a dozen times in the New Testament. He means for the trials that come our way to increase our perseverance. When we successfully pass small hurdles, He may put bigger ones in our way. Why? Because He loves us. Persistence results in faith that is pure, molten gold.
Lord, we can only persist because You are unchanging. We pray that we will keep our eyes fixed on You and keep moving forward.
