God is glorified through our persistent boldness. By pounding on God’s door, praying and refusing to give up, we declare our confidence in the goodness and the power of God. The more the pounding, the greater the declaration of confidence.
I know trying to manage the tension between God’s sovereignty and our prayer can make your head start to ache. But if you can stop trying to reduce God down to an easy syllogism and just listen to Jesus, the message is clear: If God’s not answering, keep praying.
