David Jeremiah answer on prayer: Dr. David Jeremiah of Shadow Mountain Community Church has been on a question and answer campaign on prayers. In this campaign, the founder of Turning Point Ministry, Pastor David Jeremiah welcomes the general public to ask him any question on prayer and have a biblical anwer on them.
Does God get annoyed if you continue to pray for the same thing over and over again?
David Jeremiah answered:
Jesus told two parables to teach us not to become discouraged in our prayer lives. The first parable is found in Luke 11:5-13. A man receives a visitor to his home late at night, but he doesn’t have any food to give him.
So he goes to his neighbor’s home and knocks on the door to ask for some bread, even though his neighbor is asleep. Jesus says that the man will receive the bread “because of his persistence” (verse 8). The second parable is in Luke 18:1-8. In this parable, a widow continues to come before a judge asking for justice from her adversary. The widow eventually receives justice because she is persistent in asking for it.
Jesus tells us “[We] always ought to pray and not lose heart” (Luke 18:1). By praying, we commit ourselves to God, and even though we don’t see what He is doing, we know He’s doing something. We don’t lose hope or become discouraged; we continue to pray. God is always answering our prayers, even when we don’t see the results or receive the answers immediately.
