P.U.S.H.-Pray until something happens

Pray until something happens.
A couple of years ago, I heard a pastor say that you should only pray for something once.
I tried in vain to follow that notion but I kept finding myself going back to the same thing and praying over and over again for it.
I would sometimes start my prayer out with. In the name of Jesus, Father God I know that you are the Almighty and you encompass everything. I know that I have prayed for this before and I am sorry to be praying again about it. I know God that you have already heard my prayers but I am still looking for the answer.
Next, my prayers would be something like. In the name of Jesus, Father God I am worried because I have not seen the answer to my prayers yet.
Finally the prayers would be In the name of Jesus, Father God I have come to you with my prayers and I am going to keep coming to you until I see the answer. Your word state.(I would quote the scripture) and I am standing on that. In the name of Jesus, I know that you are preparing great and wonderful things for me and You have the answer to my prayer. In the name of Jesus, I am just asking you for patience while I wait for your answer.
believe it or not, I usually got the answer to my prayer after the last prayer that I just shared with you.
I had to give up on the notion to just pray for something once because I finally realized a couple of things.
First, each time I am praying, I am still developing the relationship between God and myself.
Each time I am praying, I am asking Jesus to step in.
Each time I am praying, I am giving up the battle and turning it over to the Lord
Each time I am praying, I am learning more and more scripture
And
Each time I pray, I develop some strength and power. The first couple of my prayers I was faint and begging.
At the end of those prayers, I developed some power and strength.
Did you see what just happened?
The birth of an Intercessor.
Someone who has the power to say to Satan---MOVE
Someone who is willing to P.U.S.H. Pray until something happens.

I am dealing with a situation that God has opened my eyes too, however I don't know what direction to move. I know he led me to this for a reason, but I feel like I'm trying to move a mountain. If I didn't pray for guidance and answers about this everyday I would lose hope, and prayer keeps my faith alive. I know that this mountain will move one day because God led me to it. I know all I have to do is keep the faith and P.U.S.H

what you say is liberating me and many people. many people feel bad when they have to pray the 2nd or 3rd time. what is he going to do if the answer is still not coming ? is his subsequent prayer is prayer of unbelief? wow! you have help to solve this problem. this view of yours is more biblical, Jesus said `would not God avenge His people who cried to Him day and night?
thank you for posting this
