Have you ever struggled with unanswered prayers? Unanswered prayers can be frustrating and even discouraging. When God is silent, we may start thinking, “Why am I still praying? What is the use?” As a result, many of us may quit praying. We are often like a child who knocks on the door and runs away. We don’t stick around long enough to find out if God is home and if He is going to open the door to us.
In Luke 11:9-10, Jesus says “when we Ask, it will be given to you; when we Seek, we will find; and when we Knock, the door will be opened to us. Jesus wants us to understand that, for everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Our Heavenly Fathers, desires us to approach God with bold persistence, knowing that as a loving father, He will provide for our needs, both spiritual and physical.
