What Is Answered Prayer?

To have our prayers answered, we must keep on asking, keep on seeking, keep on knocking, for this is the continuing action of the Greek verb in Matthew 7:7, 8 and also of Luke 11:5-13, the story of the man who wanted bread at midnight, and kept asking until he got it. Don’t give up. Don’t get discouraged, keep asking. Why? The only reason I know is that prayer changes me because I am in His presence, and then I either begin to change my┬árequests, or I become able to cope with my circumstances which may or may not change.
