9 “And so I tell you, 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. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. (Luke 11:5-10 NLT)
Prayer is not a one time thing. I've heard people say I asked for something and He didn't give it to me. Two problems with that. We need to pray according to God's will because we don't always know or want what is best for us. Second we need to be persistent in our prayers. We need to keep bringing our requests to God so that we realize how much we need His help and recognize God's answer to our prayers when He gives them. Regardless of the challenges you may be facing, it is too soon to stop praying now.
