When we get discouraged because we’ve prayed for something for years, what should keep us going in persistent prayer? Does it honor God for us to keep praying for the same thing or does it show a lack of submission to his will?

Francis Chan, Brian Davis, and TGC Council member Sam Storms discussed how Christians should react when it appears God isn’t responding to our prayers. They discuss Romans 8:28, what we are permitted to ask God for, and what we can confidently expect. “I want to be enthusiastic and expectant that all things are possible with God,” Davis said. “I can ask him for anything, knowing that nothing is impossible with him. But I can’t put my hope in anything that’s just possible.”
