PUSH is secret in praying. When nothing is happening in your prayer, PUSH can be applied. This is about perseverance and importunity in praying. Don’t stop praying.
32 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Take heed, WATCH and pray; for you do not know when the time is.
34 It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to WATCH. 35 WATCH therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— 36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: WATCH!”
To be successful in life, we must watch our words, attitude, temptations, character and household. Jesus commanded us to WATCH.
