There is a story of a 3-year-old boy who went to the grocery store with his mother.
Before they entered the grocery store she said to him, "Now you're not
going to get any chocolate chip cookies, so don't even ask."
She put him up in the cart & he sat in the little child's seat while she wheeled down the aisles.
He was doing just fine until they came to the cookie section. He saw the
chocolate chip cookies & he stood up in the seat & said, "Mom,
can I have some chocolate chip cookies?"
She said, "I told you not even to ask. You're not going to get any at all." So he sat back down.
They continued down the aisles, but in their search for certain items
they ended up back in the cookie aisle. "Mom, can I please have some
chocolate chip cookies?"
She said, "I told you that you can't have any. Now sit down & be quiet."
Finally, they were approaching the checkout lane. The little boy sensed that this may be his last chance.
So just before they got to the line, he stood up on the seat of the cart
& shouted in his loudest voice, "In the name of Jesus, may I have
some chocolate chip cookies?"
And everybody round about just laughed. Some even applauded. And, due to
the generosity of the other shoppers, the little boy and his mother
left with 23 boxes of chocolate chip cookies.
The point is, we ought always to pray and not give up. There's power in a persistent prayer.
