Do not give up those prayers which God’s Spirit has put in your hearts — for remember, the things you have asked for are worth waiting for. Besides, you are a beggar when you are in prayer; therefore you must not be a chooser as to the time when God shall hear you. If you had right ideas of yourself, you would say, “It is a wonder that He ever listens to me at all, so unworthy as I am. Does the Infinite indeed bow His ear to me? May I hope He will at last listen to me? Then I may well continue my prayers.” And recollect it is your only hope: there is no other Savior. This or none — Christ’s blood or else eternal wrath. And to whom shall you go if you turn away from Him? None ever yet perished pleading for mercy; therefore keep on. Besides, better men than you have had to wait. Kings, and patriarchs, and prophets have waited; therefore surely you can be content to sit in the King’s antechamber a little while. It is an honor to sit as Mordecai did at the gate. Pray on — wait on! “Ah!” says one, “that is just what I have been doing a long time.” Yes, yes, there are different kinds of waiting. A man says, “I have been waiting”: but he has folded his arms and gone to sleep. You may wait in that way till you are lost. The waiting I mean is “getting all things ready” — the waiting for the physician by the poor sufferer who cries out in pain, “Is the doctor coming?” I will be surety for my Master when I say that none such will be sent away empty. He will never break His promise. Try Him —TRY HIM!
