Imagine if God couldn't be bothered to answer when we come knocking. Fortunately God could be bothered. God acted at the time of the flood, the time of Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Maybe our persistance is really just a way of going deeper into relationship with God.

I can't be bothered...

The New Revised Standard Version Perseverance in Prayer

Do not bother me; the door has already been locked

The New Revised Standard Version The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge

this widow keeps bothering me

Imagine if that was God's response

What would the world look like?
How would we be?

Fortunately it wasn't God's reponse

Not only at the time of Noah
Not only at the time of Jesus
The New Revised Standard Version The Promise of the Holy Spirit

he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.

Why do we have to "beg"?

Maybe it isn't begging
Maybe it isn't begging -- maybe it is something else
Maybe it is about going deeper

Maybe it is about being in a relationship

The New Revised Standard Version Perseverance in Prayer

how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!
