The Secret Sauce to Answered Prayer

One of the greatest investments my grandfather instilled in me was the importance of having persistence in life, to not give up when life gets hard. Picking up this character trait has paid huge dividends throughout my life and I’m grateful.


Jesus himself spoke of the importance of being persistent with God in our prayers, to not give up in requesting God’s hand to move on our behalf. He highlighted this truth, as he did often, through a parable. Listen to Jesus’ words:

And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought  always to pray and not  lose heart.  He said,  In a certain city there was a judge who  neither feared God nor respected man.  And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying,  ” Give me justice against my adversary. ”    For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself,  ” Though I neither fear God nor respect man,  yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming. ”  And the Lord said,  Hear what the unrighteous judge says.  And  will not God give justice to  his elect,  who cry to him day and night?  Will he delay long over them?  I tell you, he will give justice to them  speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes,  will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:1-8 ESV)

Did you catch that? God is actually encouraging us to be annoyingly incessant in our prayers to him.

Jesus makes the contrasting point that if an evil, corrupt, judge will give in and meet the need, how much more so will our loving heavenly dad step in on our behalf. The more we seek him, the more we see him as our ultimate provider and that kind of faith pleases Him. persistent prayer gets God’s attention!

Let me urge you to not give up, but keep on knocking, keep on coming, keep on praying!

Praying with you and for you.

  1. I have realized that over the course of making a relationship with real estate entrepreneurs, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in every real estate purchase, a fee is paid. All things considered, FSBO sellers don’t “save” the percentage. Rather, they fight to win the commission by way of doing the agent’s occupation. In completing this task, they devote their money and time to complete, as best they might, the obligations of an realtor. Those jobs include revealing the home through marketing, introducing the home to buyers, creating a sense of buyer desperation in order to make prompt an offer, scheduling home inspections, controlling qualification assessments with the loan company, supervising repairs, and assisting the closing of the deal.

  2. Thanks for the something totally new you have unveiled in your writing. One thing I would really like to touch upon is that FSBO interactions are built eventually. By presenting yourself to the owners the first saturday their FSBO is usually announced, ahead of the masses commence calling on Monday, you build a good association. By giving them methods, educational resources, free reports, and forms, you become the ally. If you take a personal affinity for them in addition to their circumstance, you create a solid interconnection that, most of the time, pays off when the owners opt with a real estate agent they know along with trust – preferably you.

  3. I have learned new things from the blog post. One other thing to I have observed is that usually, FSBO sellers will certainly reject a person. Remember, they can prefer not to use your providers. But if an individual maintain a reliable, professional romance, offering guide and keeping contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually have the ability to win interviews. From there, a house listing follows. Many thanks
