Lesson Overview

Persevering in prayer isn’t easy. If we’re not attentive, we can confuse the need to keep praying about something with God saying “no” and give up without seeing any results. But the vital importance of going the distance in prayer is illustrated in multiple places in both the Old and New Testaments. In this lesson, we’ll examine what God’s Word has to teach us about this vital topic and gain practical insight for persevering in prayer ourselves.
