Bible: Luke 11:5-9

11:5 Then 1  he said to them, “Suppose one of you 2  has a friend, and you go to him 3  at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 4  11:6 because a friend of mine has stopped here while on a journey, 5  and I have nothing to set before 6  him.’ 11:7 Then 7  he will reply 8  from inside, ‘Do not bother me. The door is already shut, and my children and I are in bed. 9  I cannot get up and give you anything.’ 10  11:8 I tell you, even though the man inside 11  will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of the first man’s 12  sheer persistence 13  he will get up and give him whatever he needs.

11:9So 14  I tell you: Ask, 15  and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door 16  will be opened for you.
