Relentless prayer is a relentless pursuit in seeing God’s will done on earth.
“Prayers forever prayed,
When answered are miracles displayed,
Testimonies of the tried and true,
Faith strengthened when one prays,
Seeking only God’s eternal view.”
“God knows His people perfectly, for He created us. Therefore, the way He laid out His Word, a child can grasp the truths and an adult can be challenged by them; a new believer can gain understanding, while a mature believer continues to grow as the Holy Spirit consistently illuminates truths once a mystery.
God’s ability to meet people right where they are is unmatched.
Therefore, when God calls us to pray, He is calling us to read the Bible. he is calling us to listen to Him. He is calling us to be receptive to His Word. He desires a dialogue, not a monologue; as dialogue builds relationship. God is not just our Creator, He is Yahweh – our personal LORD. He is always speaking to us; witnessed in His provision of the written Word.” – excerpt taken from Revival of the Hearts, by Alysa VanderWeerd.

“God opposes the proud but favors the humble. So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
