Patience and Prayer not cease to pray for you.   Colossians 1:9

Some years ago, a woman wrote me that she had pleaded for ten years for the conversion of her husband, but that he was more hardened than ever. I advised her to continue to plead. Sometime later I heard from her again. She said her husband was gloriously and miraculously converted in the eleventh year of her prayer vigil. How thankful she was that she had kept on praying!
    The Scripture says "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17). This should be the motto of every true follower of Jesus Christ. Never stop praying, no matter how dark and hopeless your case may seem. Your responsibility isn't to tell God when He must act or even how He must act. Your responsibility is simply to "pray without ceasing," trusting Him to act according to His perfect will.

When I was in Ukraine before my parents adopted me. I saw allot of kids being adopted but not me. I asked God why? Why not me? From that day I have prayed for a long time God would you give me a family.Couple of years when by nothing happened. Listen to this I did not gave up on praying. I prayed and prayed and God has answered my prayer. A family came to my orphanage to pick someone and it was me. I was so happy. I thanked God for all those years he had me waiting for a prefect family. Like this Devotion says " never give up on praying."  He will answered your prayers not when you wanted but in the write time.
