"Always pray and not lose heart" - pray without ceasing
pray without ceasing
Luke 18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; వారు విసుకక నిత్యము ప్రార్థన చేయుచుండవలె ననుటకు ఆయన వారితో ఈ ఉపమానము చెప్పెను.
"Always pray and not lose heart"
Luke 11:3,5-10 Give us day by day our daily bread. And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.
I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
I Thess 5:17 Pray without ceasing. యెడతెగక ప్రార్థనచేయుడి;
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; ఆత్మవలన ప్రతి సమయమునందును ప్రతి విధమైన ప్రార్థనను విజ్ఞాపనను చేయుచు, ఆ విషయమై సమస్త పరిశుద్ధుల నిమిత్తమును పూర్ణమైన పట్టుదలతో విజ్ఞాపనచేయుచు మెలకువగా ఉండుడి.
When we do not get quick answers to our prayers,or when they are not answered as we think they should be, we may be tempted to stop praying. If these temptations do not come out of our own minds and hearts, the devil will try to implant them there.
Let us not give in to such temptations.
Ceasing to pray results in defeat in life, and unfruitfulness in the service of God.
we must not give up no matter what may be our disappointments,
no matter what remembrance of failure,
no matter what guilt we feel about past sins,
no matter what consciousness we have of our present sinful nature,
no matter what thoughts which tell us that is to no use to pray,
no matter that God seems far away,
no matter that we seem to get no answers to our prayers,
no matter what temptations to unbelief,
no matter what our circumstances or mental condition or spiritual struggles.
Giving up prayer is sin (Isam 12:23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way: నా మట్టుకు నేను మీ నిమిత్తము ప్రార్థన చేయుట మానుటవలన యెహోవాకు విరోధముగ పాపము చేసినవాడ నగుదును. అది నాకు దూరమగునుగాక. కాని శ్రేష్ఠమైన చక్కని మార్గమును మీకు బోధింతును,and leads to further further sin )
It is the way to despair and ruin in the spiritual life.
So whatever we do or do not do, can or cannot do,
let us continue to pray to the one true God, the God and Father of Lord Jesus Christ.
