Bold Prayers

How to A-S-K BOLDLY in Prayer

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matt. 7:7).

I. A-sk with Simplicity

“Ask, and it shall be given you” (Matt. 7:7).

A. Asking gets the response of a gift. Children receive gifts from their parents because they ask.

B. We are God’s children. He wants us to ask in childlike faith. We are to ask largely (Matt. 7:11).

C. We are to keep on asking. Some do not ask at all. Many more do not continue to ask (Matt. 7:8).

II. S-eek with Intensity

“Seek, and ye shall find” (Matt. 7:7).

A. Seeking brings discovery. We discover God’s Word, His promises, and His blessings (Jer. 29:13).

B. Search for the deeper, richer values to be found in Christ. Treasures are discovered in the secret place of the Most High (Ps. 91:1).

C. Precious souls—far more valuable than silver and gold—are found when we seek out the lost and win them to Christ (Dan. 12:3).

III. K-nock with Persistency

“Knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matt. 7:7).

A. Persistent knocking gets a response.

B. Persistent knocking means prevailing prayer, fasting, all night in prayer, perhaps.

C. Persistent prayer gains an entrance into the secret treasures of divine resources (Isa. 45:1–3).

D. Persistent knocking calls for determination. It takes time for God to grow an oak or a rose. It takes time for Him to answer certain of our prayers (Matt. 7:8).
