Breakthrough Prayer: The Secret of Receiving What You Need from God
We see this in the following scripture:

7 "Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks receives; he
who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
It is asking, seeking, and knocking until the answer
is received, found, or opened.

It is being so obsessed with getting something that
a person never gives up until God responds.
The Power of Persistence: Breakthroughs in Your Prayer Life
The words ask, seek, and knock are in the present
tense. A person is to keep on asking, keep on seeking, and keep on knocking. He

Breakthrough for Unanswered Prayer
b. Prayer is to be often.
Christ commanded prayer. He pointedly said: "Ask...seek...knock." And, as
pointed out above, He demanded that we pray often and pray with intensity.
c. The answers to our prayers
are assured (Matthew
(1). God is not
reluctant to give. He is not sitting back disinterested and unconcerned about
our welfare. He is as a loving father is to his child—loving and caring. He will
not refuse the request of His dear child.
(2). God will
not mock our requests. He does not give grudgingly (James
1:5). He does not even hesitate to give. And what He gives is not of less
quality than what an earthly father gives. God does not give ragged substitutes.
He gives exactly, or better than, what we ask (Matthew
d. The thing wanted must be in
God's will. It must not be asked from selfish desires and motives. God gives
only what is good and wholesome for us (1
John 5:14-15; cp.
e. True prayer, persevering
prayer, acknowledges our dependence upon God. When we are genuinely in need,
we come to God and ask and seek and knock. This has been the experience of all
believers time and again.

Christ said that true prayer is prayer that really means
business: it is sincere and genuine in its requests and it keeps on asking and
asking until God answers.
True prayer is not sleepy eyed prayer, ritual prayer,
routine prayer, half-hearted prayer, or doubting prayer. This is where real
practical spiritual warfare is at and most people don’t even realize it.
The enemy often slips in and often causes the above
negative aspects of prayer to take place.

Why doesn’t God stop the devil from interfering with our
prayer? Because God has given us, a free will and free choice and He will not

true if the request can be met by human effort. There certainly is no idea of
sluggishness or complacency in the tone of "ask...seek...knock." The thrust is
action, a get-to-it attitude.
Knocking contains two ideas.

not pound and pound away at the same door. We must move about knocking until the
right door is opened.
