Pray—no matter what

Have you ever prayed for a solution to a problem but slacked off when things started going your way? Or not even bothered to pray at all when you've felt confident of your position? Years ago I learned the importance of praying right through to the resolution of a difficulty, no matter how straightforward the situation appeared to be.

I learned that a friend with whom I was in business was planning to renege on a large debt he owed me. In order to help resolve our dispute, we scheduled a meeting with a business associate. For several days before the meeting, I reviewed all the facts, planned my presentation, and was looking forward to arguing the case.
