If Prayer Becomes A Habit, Success WILL Become A Lifestyle

"One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up." Luke 18:1
•18:1 To persist in prayer and not give up does not mean endless repetition or painfully long prayer sessions. Constant prayer means keeping our requests continually before God as we live for him day by day, believing he will answer. When we live by faith, we are not to give up. God may delay answering, but his delays always have good reasons. As we persist in prayer, we grow in character, faith, and hope. — Life Application Study Bible NLT
Theme: (Success)
[Explanation]: Although people work very hard for money and fame, God views success as having a good reputation, moral character, and the spiritual devotion to obey him.
[Importance]: A successful relationship with God counts for eternity. Everything else is perishable. All our resources, time, and talents come from God. We should strive to use them wisely.

"And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for." 1 John 5:14-15
•5:14-15 The emphasis here is on God's will, not our will. When we communicate with God, we don't demand what we want; rather we discuss with him what he wants for us. If we align our prayers to his will, he will listen; and we can be certain that if he listens, he will give us a definite answer. Start praying with confidence! — Life Application Study Bible NLT
