One more time
Do I climb this rocky hill,
Bowed down with care.
One more round
Of travailing before
Your throne in prayer.
One more chance
Of pleading breakthroughs
For all of my needs.
One more time
Of entrusting everything
To You on my knees.
Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
Have you ever reached the point in praying about a matter where you feel like giving up? Where no matter how many times you have pleaded for a breakthrough, one does not come?
What if just one more time of travailing before God in prayer is the very time He intervenes?
Although it is difficult to keep believing when answers are delayed, God wants us to keep asking. Climb that rocky hill, and give the matter to God one more time. Keep seeking Him. Watch what God will do!

Yep, my friend, it IS hard to “keep on keeping on” but we serve a Faithful God and at just the right time He WILL answer our prayers IF we keep on and do NOT give up. Thanks Sue. Be Blessed!!!
Very wise words, Sue! We need to persist in prayer.
