Perhaps, the greatest struggle when it comes to prayer is the persistence that is required. It is the situation we pray for over and over again only for it not to change. It is the person we pray for time and time again only to experience the same painful results. In Matthew 15: 21-28, we encounter a woman that teaches us how to pray persistently. Persistent prayer 1) waits on Jesus 2) presumes the silence of Jesus 3) prioritizes the mission of Jesus. Ultimately, persistent prayer is about what it produces, a great faith. This great faith has the power to move the mountains and to face them when they are not moved.
