The Power Of Persistent Prayer

You've probably heard the story... Jesus tells about a widow who has been wronged, and who is determined to get justice. So she pesters the local judge until he finally gives in and gets her what she wants. He doesn't do it out of concern her for her or respect for God - he just wants to make it stop!

The Scripture tells us that we are to pray without ceasing. But the point of this story is not that if we just pester God enough, He'll finally given in and give us our way. He loves us too much, and too often what we want is not really in our best interest. So what does it mean to pray persistently, and why is it important?
