Pause for Thought

I’ve been challenged recently by a book I’ve read on how to be more determined about the things we pray for.

The expression ‘PUGAlist’ (not to be confused with ‘pugilist’ although in some ways connected) came to mind, meaning Pray Until God Answers. 
God answers our prayers a) ‘yes’, b) ‘not yet’, or c) ‘no, but I have something better in mind’. 
So, how long do we ‘PUGAlise’ for? Until God starts to answer our prayers and we can then change our praying stance to ‘thank you’. Be encouraged.
