When is it time to stop praying?

My prayer questions is, when do you stop praying. For example, I pray that God will heal someone, but six months on and they are still ill with cancer. Thanks, bill

I have discovered that the Holy Spirit is very attentive to this issue. He is a wonderful guide with regard to when to start and stop praying. It is true that our prayers are limited and we can’t cover everything. But often God keeps stoking a fire of prayer in me for certain issues and I seem to have confidence that he will act. The Scriptures teach that persistence is a virtue in prayer—and that is the default mode. But God has also been faithful to move my spirit to another focus when it seems that the time is right for the move. I don’t think a lot about it, but it seems to happen at his directive.
