Have you ever wondered why you should persevere in prayer?
Dutch Sheets shared an insightful message on this a few days ago that has me extra excited about the power of prayer and why we must persevere.
Dutch shared that "just as invisible elements of our natural world can be measured, such as oxygen or carbon dioxide, there are unseen spiritual substances, as well, which are no less real and exist in varying degrees or measures."
This is important when we realize the truth that God has made a decision to work on earth through humans.
In the Bible we see stories that demonstrate times when something was God's idea, God's timing, and God's will. Yet it took persevering prayer to accomplish it.
"I realized that when perseverance in prayer was necessary, it wasn’t to persuade God or overcome His reluctance. It was to release more of His power," said Dutch.

The first week of January 2020 God told me, "Redeem the time on your knees." And oh how I have warred through the dark season. I'm so thankful for this word on persevering prayer.
This year my word is STAND. Will you stand with me in prayer for God's will in our cities, nation and world? I believe we will see great and mighty things beyond what we could ask or imagine.
