How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time!
There are sometimes those things we are praying for that seem too big. Too impossible. Too far away. Too miraculous.
The secular world takes it a day at a time, Christians take it a prayer at a time:
Luke 18 vs 1
“And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.”
I have three friends who are currently praying for the impossible. This verse is my continual reminder to keep praying for them, to keep trusting, to keep believing, to keep hoping.
The scene in Finding Nemo where the little fish say “Just keep swimming” is often in my head during difficult times when I tell myself, “Just keep praying.”
As I continue to join them in prayer, I am reminded that we serve a Father who longs to give good gifts to His children, and I find comfort in the knowledge that His plan is perfect.
