    not lose heart

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,


    not lose heart = not become discouraged

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
