Session 11:

Is Prayer answered?



Is prayer always answered? Sometimes it seems not, but Jesus tells a parable here that encourages us to persist.


Key Words


Ask, Seek, Knock: These verbs are in what is called the Imperative- so the sense of them is ‘keep on asking, keep on seeking, keep on knocking’ – until you get your answer. Jesus really wants us to pray and keep on praying!



Have you prayed about things and given up because you’ve not seen an answer yet?

Keep going!

Sometimes it helps to keep a prayer journal, making a note of things you’re prayed for and then recording answers as they come. Remember to give thanks when they do.
