Persistence In Prayer Avails Much

Posted on:August 22nd, 2017

We need to persist in prayer with trustful confidence. Although the essential parts of the Catholic prayers are adoration and thanksgiving, the prayer of petition plays a big part in our daily life.

We cannot provide, by our unaided selves, for our spiritual and temporal needs.

Christ himself has told us to ask him for these needs: “Ask and you shall receive.”

Asking with fervor and perseverance proves that we have the “great Faith” we need to be able to receive all that Christ wants to grant us in response to our requests.

We must realize and remember that we do not always get exactly what we ask for, but rather what God knows we need, what He wants for us and what is really best for us.

What we need most is to receive the peace and security that come from being in harmony with God’s will for us.

As Christians, we also know that our particular requests may not always be for our good, or for the final good of the person for whom we are praying.

In that case, the good God will not grant what would be to our, or their, eternal harm. But if the prayer is sincere and persevering, we will always get an answer – one which is better than what we asked for.

Hence let us trust that every time we pray for something, the answer is already on its way before we even asked God.

We just need to trust God’s timetable and infinite wisdom that he will answer us according to His will and purpose.
