Isaiah 62:6-7 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the LORD in remembrance, take no rest, and give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.
How are you at persistence, at not giving up, but keeping on going until the promise is fulfilled? Jesus' followers today are the watchmen who have been set over the walls of the kingdom, who are to cry out to God to defend His city. When we see attacks coming - those who would deny the kingdom, dilute the kingdom or ignore the kingdom - we are to cry out to the king and, as the text says, "Give Him no rest" until He acts to fulfll His word.
