Ask, Seek and Knock

Labels: , .

The Promises of Prayer

"And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Luke 11:9-10

Notice the promise is repeated with the phrase "for every one".

Petition (ask) - Request expressed
Persistence (seek) - Response expected
Perseverance (knock) - Resolve exercised

Notice an increase in energy for the petitioner in each action. Yet there is also an corresponding increase in nearness to the provider.
