“Continue In Prayer” – Colossians 4:2-3

I. Our Prayer Is To Be

1 Chronicles 16:11 Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.

“This is not to suggest that God is reluctant to answer prayer and that we must “wear Him out” by our praying. Quite the opposite is true: God enjoys answering our prayers. But He sometimes delays the answer to increase our faith and devotion and to accomplish His purposes at the right time. God’s delays are not always God’s denials. As we continue in prayer, our own hearts are prepared for the answer God will give. We find ourselves growing in grace even before His answer comes.” (Wiersbe, 1996)

II. Our Prayers Are To Be

IV. Our Prayer Is To Be
