““Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Ran across these verses today and learned something I’ve never thought about! Prayer is something Jesus refers to and shows examples of doing often and it kind of hit me in the face on my prayer life because He makes the importance and power of prayer obvious. The biggest thing was how he said, “Keep on praying” “keep on asking”, showing how persistent and constant prayer should be. I’ve noticed my prayer life is only as strong as my faith. There’s not a lot of belief in the Lord’s provision if I pray once, expect immediate help and when I don’t see it right off then I start trying to do things myself and stop praying bout it. This showed me how both faith and prayer are intertwined cause if you really believe then you are persistent in prayer, patient for God to answer that prayer in His timing not your own. May not have all the answers and help around us immediately or when we want it but just gotta keep pressing in, keep going to the Lord even when our faith is wearing thin. Jesus gives us every reason to be constant and persistent in prayer, every reason to believe that every door will be opened, finding what we seek, receiving the help we need!
