Keep on believing the promises and insisting that God is true.  The Syrophenician woman lost nothing by pressing her suit against chilling discouragements.

Satan will not mind how we labor in prayer for a few days, weeks or even months, if he can at last discourage us, so that we cease praying as though it were of no use.

*   *   *   *   *

A heaven-taught heart will pray until it cannot pray any more.  As soon as the assurance comes we should stop praying, and henceforth everything should be praise.  – A.B.S.

C.G. Finney used to say when in prayer, “I hope Thou dost not think I can be denied”; and all the world knows how God honoured his faith.

Prayer and patience and faith are never disappointed.  – CECIL.

Nothing gives more glory to God than simple faith in His word, especially when all things seem to render the fulfillment of it hopeless.  – JAMIESON FAUSSET AND BROWN’S COMMENTARY.
