Breakthrough Prayer 2 – Why Persevere in Prayer
Here in Part 2 of breakthrough Prayer we will continue to
look at the following scripture where we are told by Christ to Ask, Seek and
Knock if we expect to have breakthrough in our prayer :
Matthew 7:7-8 (NIV)
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.
When Heaven is Silent
There are three reasons to persevere in prayer for
breakthrough. These are crucial to know for our success in our everyday
practical spiritual warfare in dealing with the schemes of the enemy.
1. Prayer is conditional and Christ is to the point:
If we ask, we receive.
If we do not ask, we do not receive.
If we seek, we find.
If we do not seek, we do not find.
If we knock, it is opened to us.
If we do not knock, it is not opened to us.
Breakthrough Prayer: The Secret of Receiving What You Need from God
"Ye have not because ye ask not" (James
True prayer is persevering breakthrough prayer. Our
genuineness and sincerity are known by God by how much we persevere in prayer.
1) We show
disrespect to the Giver when we ask and walk away before receiving what we ask.
2) We show our
gross insincerity when we seek once or twice and stop.
3) We leave
any resident questioning when we knock once or twice and walk away before he
comes or has time to open.
In Persevering Breakthrough Prayer there is differences
between the words ask, seek, and knock.
1. The word "ask" says the
a. We ask when
there is a need or want.
b. We ask when
there is someone who has plenty and who can give what we need or want.
2. The word "seek" says the
a. We seek
when we need or want something of value.
b. We seek
when we ourselves are responsible for finding what we need or want.
3. The word "knock" says the
a. We knock
when we are shut out and need or want entrance.
b. We knock
when there is someone on the other side who can open to us.
2. Every believer is heard and every prayer is
It is not just the believers who are well-known—the leaders
and official laborers—whom God hears and answers, He hears everyone who "asks
and seeks and knocks."

3. God cares much more than an earthly father
God can be approached as Father.
The God Who Cares and Knows You: John
Above all others, He knows what a father should be.
Whatever good is within earthly fathers has come from Him.
He made fathers. He put within their hearts an instinctive attachment and
love and desire to nurture. Therefore, we can expect Him to be personally
attached to us and to love and nurture us (
ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the
Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it" (John
ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be
"But if from
thence thou shalt seek the lord thy
God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy
"If my people,
which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my
face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will
forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2
"I love them
that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me" (Proverbs
"Call unto me,
and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou
knowest not" (Jeremiah
