... We must pray and seek God’s face. Consistent and focused prayer that will persist despite time and circumstances. This is the kind of prayer that creates strategic witness and ministry, changes lives, subverts governments, and influences nations. The relationship between the duration of prayer and the answers to prayer is a mystery that cannot be systematized. Yet it is the witness of Scripture and reiterated by experience that the prayer that releases salvation and deliverance will certainly exceed the attention spans of any generation that lives for personal convenience and instant gratification.
