Faithful Persistence

Genesis 19:29 "So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, He remembered Abraham, and He brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived."

Lot wasn't rescued because of his great faith, in fact, history doesn't paint a picture of a man with a high level of integrity or mature character. This family was rescued by the faithful prayers of Abraham.

Who are we desperately praying for? What family members, friends, and co-workers are we asking God to rescue? I recognize that salvation must be an act of free will, but we can still be in persistent conversation with God for their protection. Even when we don't see the immediate results, we have to continue to petition God to save the people we care about. We'll find that as God rescues them from their current circumstance they may have their eyes opened to the grander vision of salvation He is offering.
