The Prayer

The Word declares in Matthew 7:7-8,  “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

 I want you to experience good success in your prayers to encourage you to keep on asking, seeking, knocking (ASK), until the doors are open. 

We have partnership in our prayer life with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The final piece of any prayer is God the Father finishing the work of a diligent child of God. His big hands and strong arms open the door to the final knock. For Jesus has declared in John 15:16 that whatever you ASK in his name the Father will give you. Prayer is the key that unlocks the door to your ASKing.

Although our heavenly Father knows what our needs are before we ask, he require us to ask him so that we may rejoice with him when the desire is fulfilled. Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Jesus said that he has come that we may have life and have it more abundantly.

Many are headed in the wrong direction, and we must lift up a standard and redirect their course. The good news is that Jesus saves, heals, and delivers. The name of Jesus itself means “God is salvation.” He will deliver and rescue us from being ensnared in the thickets.

God is long-suffering and is not willing that any man should perish but wants all men to come to repentance. Many times, we suffer long as we wait on him to do his work of wooing souls unto himself, giving them a space to repent. Every so often we are the principal figure needed to turn a person around for the master’s use. Remember we are to love and pray for our enemies.

So, we have work to do as ambassadors in the army of our Lord, saving the lost at any cost, going into the enemy’s territory and taking back the souls that belong to God.  John 3:16 says,  “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” Note that he gave the only begotten son he had—that is love, my friends. Everlasting life is eternal life in the presence of God the Father; the phrase can also be translated as eternal bliss!


Whosoever will, let us pray this prayer and get the victory over our lives and the lives of others. We are in an unseen war, and our adversaries are alive and active; the Word of God says do not be ignorant of their devices. The inference is that Satan never stops his war against us, and we are to never stop praying and using our spiritual weapons against him. This war is a present event happening now, in real time.

Luke 18:1: “Men ought always to pray and not to faint.”

These prayers pray the Word of God in order to penetrate the enemy’s camp. The Word of God is active and alive and declares, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”[1] His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, discerning and cutting through sickness, the whiles of the devil, and our unbelief—everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. The Word cuts this way, and that way and Jesus is that Word!

John puts it like this, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”[2] “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made.”[3] “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but the Word of God will stand forever.”[4] “How can a young man cleanse his ways? By taking heed to the Word of God.”[5] The Word is eternal, and Jesus is that eternal life, praise God!
