No matter how outlandishly audacious your prayers might sound in your own ears, they are nothing in light of God’s willingness and ability to answer.
Prayer is not supposed to be all we do – it’s just supposed to undergird all we do. Prayer is not supposed to be just the first thing we do, but the first, second, fourth, seventh, and final thing we do in each circumstance.
I don’t believe there is such a thing as unanswered prayer. There is misguided prayers, selfish prayers, and doubting prayers, but true prayer doesn’t go unanswered – it is merely abandoned prematurely due to lack of persistence and faithful endurance.
