Continue presenting your petition.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” “For everyone  who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7,8.  

Ask, aiteo; Strong’s # 154. To request, petition. The word shows a seeker making a request of someone in higher position, such as an individual asking something from God (Matt. 21:22), a subject from a King (Mark 6:25), a child from a parent (Luke 11:11), or a beggar from a person of substance (Acts 3:2). The word expresses insistent asking without qualms, not “commanding” God, but solidly presenting a list whose items He longs to distribute.ask,seek,knock

The prophet Jeremiah said it well. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord… Jeremiah 29:11-14.

    I needed this encouragement. I felt like giving up the prayers. Thanks

    Scriptures from what I think is the greatest sermon of all time. What a great “listening” God we have.
