Praying -- Be Persistent

There are many conditions for answered prayer given in the New Testament. I'm not going to pretend that we will cover them all in this series. But hopefully the ones we do cover will be an encouragement to you in your prayer life.

The first condition is persistence.

Mt 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

The words "ask", "seek", and "knock" are written in such a way as to mean "keep asking", "keep on seeking" and "keep on knocking."  God expects us to keep at it and not give up.

So keep it up. I presume God wants to know that we are serious. But, remember, there are other conditions as well, so make sure you're being faithful in each area as you pray.
