Persevering in Prayer

“... persevere in prayer.”  
~Romans 12:12c (NRSV)      
Tempted to forget what we committed to do—to pray—for someone or for ourselves, we’ve stopped. Our faith has fallen foul of memory or motivation.
Picking up is easy. We just do. We stop, and we begin to pray—eyes open, from wherever we are, in the language of words. No guilt, just words.
And God blesses us... to persevere is to enjoy God’s favour.
