Jesus taught and modeled the need to pray in order realize the promises of the Father. His practice was to withdraw to seek the Father so that He might do the will of God (Luke 5:16; Hebrews 5:7). Jesus taught His disciples that the Father gives the Holy Spirit to them when they ask, seek, and knock with shameless persistence (Luke 11:5-13). The apostles didn't miss Jesus' example and His instruction; they followed His example literally (Acts 6:4) and received the Holy Spirit's fullness as promised (Acts 4:31). Extraordinary prayer was typical and expected for the most "ordinary" believer (1 Timothy 5:5). We have only mentioned New Testament examples, but the Old Testament is replete with individuals from Moses to Nehemiah who have realized the power and promises of God as a result of much prayer.

Jesus taught His disciples that the Father gives the Holy Spirit to them when they ask, seek, and knock with shameless persistence (Luke 11:5-13).

If you travel to places around the world where God is moving in monumental ways, you will find a praying Church. The American Church has largely overlooked the biblical mandate to pray day and night. Our hope is to see Jesus' words fulfilled and to see the resulting fruit follow.
