I can spin plates on my fingers! I mean I can put one of your expensive plates on one of my fingers and spin it for a few minutes on that finger without dropping and breaking the plate.
People often ask me how come I can do that. I can do it because when I was 11 years old and in boarding house I tried learning the art by using technical drawing boards hundreds of times until I could actually balance things on my finger.
The secret of my success is this, I kept at it and kept at it and kept at it until it became second nature to me.
That principle will work for prayers! It will work for learning the word of God; it will work for breaking bad habits; and, it will work for learning to do business.
Isaac, the son of Abraham, had a particular problem: he inherited some wells from his father but some unscrupulous people kept blocking his wells. They blocked his wells and he re-dug them over and over again. He did until they got tired of blocking them and then he also discovered a springing well – ‘Rehoboth’! He kept at it in the face of failure! He kept at it in the face of persecution and hate.
There is no failure that can successfully deter one who is determined to KEEP AT IT! So I say to you, KEEP AT IT.
