And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; Luke 11:5
We all heard the phrase “Pray without Ceasing” and that’s exactly what Jesus is trying to teach us here in this parable. Imagine you go to your neighbors or friends house and start banging on their door at midnight, what reaction do you think they will have? It better be an urgent request.
But you knock on that door because you know, you can trust them and eventually they will help and answer you.
And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. Luke 11:7
Sometimes it feels like God is far away or that he’s not answering. The question is do we stay at the door and keep knocking? Or do you quickly go away because you don’t believe God will answer? When we develop a strong relationship with our Father, we know he will not fail us
I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. Luke 11:8
The key is to “Pray without Ceasing” , keep asking God , keep knocking on the door, and he will answer us. I think Jesus uses a great parable here to teach us how we need to keep praying and also don’t be afraid to call on our Father at any hour in Jesus Name AMen
