Practice Persistent Prayer Video by Pastor Gary Hamrick for Cornerstone Chapel Leesburg VA
Sometimes when we pray we don’t always get WHAT we want, WHEN we want it. Nevertheless, Jesus encourages us to keep on praying and to not become discouraged. He teaches a parable about a widow who continually appealed to a judge for justice until the judge finally granted her wish. The point of the parable is this—if a cold-hearted judge can give a poor widow what she needs, how much more will our warm-hearted Father give to His children what we need! Join Pastor Gary for today’s teaching about the importance of persistent prayer.
