Daily devotional: Persistent prayer

Scripture
"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 the door will be opened to you."
Luke 11:9 NLT

Observation
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16)! Jesus told us to pray boldly and not give up. If we are seeking things that please our Heavenly Father, He will most certainly answer our requests.

Application
Consider my heart in my requests to make sure I am praying in line with the Lord's will. But then pray boldly, and don't give up!

Prayer
Lord, I love you. Thank you for this awesome day. Please direct my paths in all my work so that I am effective in the things that You want me to do. Please multiply my efforts so that You will be glorified and that Your work will not be hindered in any way. Thank you for hearing my requests, and for being a Good Father who wants the best for His children.
