Prayers of request

Jesus gave two illustrations to show his followers that they can put their requests to God confidently.

Even a tired and uncooperative neighbour can be persuaded by a person’s persistence into giving him


what he needs. How much more will God, who is a loving Father, supply all the needs of his children (Luke 11:5-10). Christians do not have to beg from a God who is unwilling to give. They go to God as children go to their father, confident that he will not disappoint them or give them less than they ask (Matt 7:7-12; Luke 11:11-13).
