Persisting in Prayer

In Luke 11:5-11 Jesus illustrated the need for persistant, shameless prayer in order to receive answers from God. He gives the example of a friend who goes for help at the odd time. The friend was hesitant to get up and give what he a asked, but because he shamelessly persisted his friend gave him what he wanted.

Jesus tells that we should keep on asking, seeking and knocking until we get the answer. God works in answer to prayer in the life of a Christian. Prayer, simply, is talking to God. God loves to hear His children. Bible tells us that His ears are always attentive to our prayers.

Have you talked to your heavenly Father today? Make it a point to do it every day, every time you need His assuring presence.

In another illustration Jesus reminded us to trust our heavenly father because he is far more better than the human fathers. No  father will give a snake to his hungry child when he\she asks for fish. Our heavenly Father is good all the time and worthy of our trust.
