How to pray Through
Are you waiting for God to answer your prayers?
Prayer is often performed as a one way conversation, when in reality, prayer is two way conversation with the sender and receiver. Without question, I have come to learn that some prayers take longer to come to pass, but keep praying (Matthew 7:7).
Pray until you get an answer.
Pray until you feel a release.
Pray until you get through.
But what does it mean to "pray through?"
To pray through requires standing firm on God's promise until you receive confirmation to stop.
To pray through is to remain persistent and steadfast in your prayer.
Luke 2:37 speaks of a widow who was persistent in prayer, "and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day."
Luke 18:4-5 speaks again of a persistent widow who sought justice from her adversary, "And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”
Daniel prayed for 21 days until his prayer was answered (Daniel 10:12).
When you pray through requires grit and determination to keep praying; keep fasting; keep seeking God until you get an answer.
Here are five ways you can pray through:
Remain persistent in prayer until you hear from God.
