Re:Verse passage – Luke 11:5-13 (day five)

“I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.”

It almost seems like Jesus is teaching 2 different approaches to prayer.  Asking and trusting. What if they are two sides of the same coin ?  A tension that we must live in? What if we are persistent AND trusting in our prayers?  Jesus believes both should exist at the same time. Both are required. When both are together, our prayers give us humility and boldness. Both needed and necessary. For God’s glory, and for our good!!
