Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart…. Luke 18:1  It is natural to want to give up whenever we encounter a seemingly insurmountable problem. The reasons are not far-fetched. The adversary often flashes the wrong pictures before us. Then, we pray expecting to see immediate results. The truth is, it does not always come as fast as we expect.

It was early evening on a Sunday when a young man walked into Betty’s fellowship study group at her home.

Betty was the cell group leader. After the meeting, the young man introduced himself as Robert. He was an ex-prisoner but had met the Lord in prison through the mission outreach of Betty’s church.

Toward the end of my first year in the University of Ibadan, I backslid from the Way and became iconoclastic. I stopped going to church and fellowship. I challenged the authenticity of Jesus Christ as the son of God and some seemingly controversial claims in the Bible.
