Jesus told us to persist—continuously and tirelessly—in asking, seeking and knocking on the doors of heaven.
The New Living Translation emphasizes the ongoing action of Jesus’ words:
“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and you will the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened” (Luke 11:9-10, NLT).
Keep on doing it. Keep on keeping on. Keep on praying!
