Pray and Not Lose Heart | Paul Washer
Text: Luke 18:1-8
Christians often find that keeping a consistent prayer life can be a challenge. If this is your struggle at the moment, then this message will be of help to you. Missionary Paul Washer urges us through his preaching on Luke 18:1-8 to overcome this difficulty and persevere in praying, since God commands us to pray at all times and not lose heart. Paul has a gift for explaining Scripture in language which anyone can understand, and he gives plenty of concrete examples to demonstrate his points. In this message, he argues that the foundation of consistent prayer is to know and understand two attributes of God: His love and His goodness. Because He loves us, He is willing to do us good, promises to do us good, and even rejoices to do us good (Jeremiah 32:40-41). Knowing these truths, we can trust in God’s absolute goodness, wisdom, and sovereignty in all things, since all things are for our good. We can also trust that God wants to give us the good things we request in prayer, and for that reason we can pray and not lose heart.
