Persistence in Communication

“If God at times seems to be slow in responding, it is because God is preparing a better gift. He will not deny us. We well know that the long-awaited gift is all the more precious for the delay in its being granted . . . . Ask, seek, insist. Through this asking and seeking you will be better prepared to receive God’s gift when it comes. God withholds what you are not yet ready for. God wants you to have a lively desire for the greatest gifts. All of which is to say, pray always and do not lose heart.”

— St. Augustine (354–430 A.D.)

Keywords: persistence, responsiveness, long-suffering, asking and seeking, desire, gifts, encouragement
