Oh goodness...I feel so silly but I need hope. I have been praying constantly for my husband and I to be able to purchase a family house and move out of our condo. We have three kids. It has been a while. Should I stop praying or continue? Will I ever have my prayer answered? Am I being silly?

  • The more you pray, the more YOU change, so even if now you may not be a person who needs a family home for her spiritual growth, at some point you may become that person.
    I wouldn't give up, I didn't and I now live i na house that literally fell into my lap (well, not THAT literally), but yes, the way this house came to us had G-d hand print all over the place.

  • Hope does not disappoint :-)
    Hope , deferred makes the heart sick which means without hope we become sick.
    so no keep praying, persevering and believing. You have not because you ask not.. so ASK Him then once you do believe it is already a finished work ! :-) Walk in the Victory and not in defeat!

  • This may very well be a test of endurance. Keep faith and hope that God will provide for you ... and don't ever stop praying. That's your communication line to God.
