Why should we persist in prayer? Oftentimes it seems that God is not listening. But that is never the case. As Jesus shows from this parable, God is always listening. Knowing this, we persist and by doing so, we are strengthened in our faith.
When we praise God for His specific acts of goodness we are strengthened in our fellowship, assured of His fidelity, reminded of His faithfulness and it makes our praise all the sweeter to Him. God loves our praises!!
