With our continued prayers why hasn't God come to the rescue? Why does God seem to be apathetic? There are a couple of biblical texts which address such things. While I shall promote the direct lessons found in the biblical accounts, I intend to look at the subject in reverse too. There is a lesson to be found. Proposition: If there is a lesson on importunate prayer there is a cause for importunate praying. God may let that cause come into our lives.
