Prayer is like growing corn

Most people think that prayer is like “Please pass the potatoes”, and someone either passes it or not, a simple request that is answered or it isn’t. But in fact prayer is like growing corn.  You plant corn and take care of it, you weed it, ferlizer it, water it , and then you eat some corn after months of taking care of it. If you take a week off from watering or weeding the corn you won’t harvest any. When you pray for something or someone and you get weary and quite  praying for even a short time  no answer. “Ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking” is the way Jesus put it. Endurance is a key character trait needed to be an effective prayer warrior.
