Jesus made such a great declaration about how we should pray to God while teaching on the mount concerning various vital subjects about the kingdom of God in the 7th chapter of the book of Matthew. This passage has actually become one of the most used passages when it comes down to being strategic in our prayer life. So to sum everything up, Christ has told us to be persistent with our prayers. He has given us a threefold process that we should go through: asking, seeking, and knocking. So it all depends on the nature of what we need.
As Christians, one thing that we really need to be careful of is that it’s very easy for us to fall into the trap of trying to put ourselves ahead of God in the context of driving people’s attention to ourselves when doing the work of the Lord. The point is that the Christian life is a form of selfless life that’s rested upon glorifying God through Christ. Oftentimes, we’re trying to do the will of God while the intent of our hearts is set on trying to give impression to others with our performance. One thing we may not realize is that this type of mindset causes God to be taken out of the picture due to the fact that it becomes totally about us trying to do our best within our own human ability in order to get people’s attention.
