Dont Stop Asking

Have you ever asked God for something for what seems like forever? Maybe your asking and praying for something this very second. I know I am. I also know its easy to discouraged and even stop asking and praying altogether. "If its meant to be its meant to be" you might say to yourself. Well I know somethings in life NEED to be, and that Jesus had something else to say. Jesus told this parable in Luke 11:6-9 "6 ‘A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit, and I have nothing for him to eat.’ 7 And suppose he calls out from his bedroom, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is locked for the night, and my family and I are all in bed. I can’t help you.’ 8 But I tell you this—though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence.[a]
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."

Keep on asking! Don't give up! God is faithful to hear our prayers, and we need to have faith that he will answer them! Jesus also said this in Mark 11:24 "I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you've received it, it will be yours." Anything and everything! Nothing is out of reach, and nothing is impossible with God. Don't stop praying for it, believe it, and receive it!
