"And He said to them, 'Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing set before him'; and he will answer from within and say, 'Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in the bed; I cannot rise and give to you'? I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you"' Luke 11:9 NKJV.
Prayer Warriors, give yourselves a "high five!" Do it not because you are so good, but because God is so good. He is worthy to be praised! He heals, delivers, sanctifies, sets free, and mostly importantly, Jesus saves!
A high five is more than what we do on Sunday mornings when the sermon gets good. A high five are the names of five people you are constantly sending up to high heaven in prayer! These are five people who will not let you talk to them about Christ, but you can pray for them. Ask, seek, and knock in your prayers as you tell the Lord about the needs of your five friends, relatives, co-workers, even your enemies. Pray in the name of Jesus. You are asking the One with all power on earth and in heaven to touch their lives when you pray in Jesus name for your friends and family, even your enemies to receive Christ.
Saul of Tarsus was a powerful enemy of Christian. No one could witness to him. He was full of hate. He persecuted Christians, but he met Jesus on the Road to Damascus and became one of the greatest proponents for Christianity who ever lived.
The Lord hears our requests when we ask, seek, and knock not because we are so good, but because of our stedfastness in prayer, "I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs (Luke 11:8). Never doubt that God is able to do exceeding, abundantly more than we can ask or think according to the power that is at work within us (Ephesians 3:20).
Do not think your prayers are weak for the five people who are hard to reach and reject Christ. If they are hard, you "go hard" in your prayer life. Ask, seek, and knock are really three different ways of doing the same thing. In order words, you should ask, and ask, and keep on asking in prayer. Now give yourself a "high five" and interceed to high heaven for your five people to be saved or reconnected to Jesus Christ today! Share their first names with us and we will pray for them too. There is power in prayer.
