"Even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs." – Luke 11:8
This parable is found only in Luke. It tells of someone who receives a midnight visitor but has no food to offer him. He goes to a friend’s home and shamelessly persists in his requests until the friend gets up and supplies his needs . The interpretation of this points out that if someone who is reluctant to help will eventually do so simply because of his neighbors shamelessness in persisting, how much more will God, who is eager and willing to answer our prayers. The disciples should pray because God is an answering God. One should make a habit of asking, seeking and knocking because God is certain to answer prayer
As Jesus taught, ask and it will be given to you. Knock, and the door will be opened. Seek and you will find (Matthew 7:7). Stay persistent in your prayers and petitions.
Father, we commit all our issues to you.we believe You for the answers. In Jesus’ name, amen.
