Ask and keep on asking.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you (Matthew 7:7 NASB).”

Be persistent.

“A prayer of a righteous person, when it is brought about, can accomplish much (James 5:16 NASB).”

Jesus gave us a perfect example of asking (and asking some more). The main character in His parable was a persistent widow. Some might even say she was a pest…

“Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not become discouraged, saying, ‘In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect any person. Now there was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me justice against my opponent.’ For a while he was unwilling; but later he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect any person, yet because this widow is bothering me, I will give her justice; otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.’” And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unrighteous judge said;now, will God not bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night, and will He delay long for them? I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth (Luke 18:1-8 NASB)?
