Notes:



Conscious Choice

Luke 11:1 Lord, teach us to pray - ask for help; exercise your freewill.

Verses 5-8 Point of the story is to be persistent. Don't give up.

Verse 9 Asks - receives; seeks - finds; knocks - opens.

"Persistence" - continuing in a course of action without regard to discouragement, opposition, or previous failure.

Verses 11-13 We can have faith that not only will God respond but He will do so with that which is good for us.

Matthew 20:29-34 We must be specific in our request.

John 14:13 and 14; 15:16;16:23 and 24 Asking is not optional; rather it is required.

James 4:1-10 We must exercise our will to want God's will.

You do not have because you do not ask.

When you ask you do not receive because you ask with wrong motives.

Ask according to God's will with godly motives.
