11 1.Sometimes demonic resistance delays God’s answer until you and heaven prevail 2.Sometimes it takes time for separate parts of complex situations to fit together Reasons to Give God Time to Answer Our Prayers Wesley Duewel, Mighty Prevailing Prayer Mighty Prevailing Power, Wesley Duewel, Pages

14 When a dam is constructed in a mountain valley, its construction may take many months. Then the water begins accumulating behind the dam. But when the water level reaches the right height, the sluice gates are opened, water begins to turn the generators, and there is tremendous power. Mighty Prevailing Power, Wesley Duewel, Page 152

15 As more and more people unite in prayer or as the prevailing person prays on and on, it seems as if a great mass of prayer is accumulated until suddenly there is a breakthrough and God’s will is accomplished. Mighty Prevailing Power, Wesley Duewel, Page

16 6.Sometimes the answer is delayed because Satan is so entrenched Mighty Prevailing Power, Wesley Duewel, Page 152
