Luke 18:1 (KJV)
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.


There was a city judge known to be very godless and with great contempt for everyone. In this city was a widow who was cheated by some men, because they knew that she had no one who could speak for her. She, however, went to this wicked judge begging him to avenge her of these men, but the judge only pushed her aside. This widow, however, kept begging the judge until her plea became embarrassing to him. It was at this point that the judge called the men who cheated her and demanded that they return all that they have taken from her. The judge then turned to the widow and said, ‘ can I at least have my peace now?’ The widow smiled, thanked him, and went away.

The story above was is culled from one the Lord Jesus told in Luke 18:2-5.

And to conclude the story, Jesus in verse 7 asked, ’don’t you think that God will surely give justice to his people who plead with him day and night?’. My answer is "yes" because I know that God is good.

What then is the reason why we have not received answers to so many prayers?

Our text today says the answer is because we faint before the answers arrive. When Daniel prayed, God heard him and send the answer immediately, but a territorial spirit hindered his answer from reaching him. The answer effectually reached him because he did not faint; he continued to pray until he received his answer.

Just like Daniel, we must learn not to quit asking God until we have seen and received what we are asking for. We must learn to wear the devil out by our consistent trust in God.

Go into today making up your mind not to quit asking until you have received your answer.

Prayer: Father, please mobilize the forces of heaven to facilitate the speedy delivery of answers to my prayers, in Jesus name. Amen.
