- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
7:7 But ask - Pray for them, as well as for yourselves: in this there can be no such danger. Seek - Add your own diligent endeavours to your asking: and knock - Persevere importunately in that diligence. #Luke 11:9|.
Mt 7:7 Ask, . . . seek, . . . knock. The terms are here used with reference to prayer, and these constitute a climax. "Ask" implies a simple petition. "Seek" indicates an earnest search. "Knock" shows perseverance in spite of hindrances. The three represent earnest prayer.

Randy read Romans 10 pay close attention to verses 8 10 You are correct God looks at the heart But the heart and mouth go hand in hand Romans 10 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

You create everything that happens to you by your intent and inward asking You ask and it comes to be by your thoughts which might not be what you are saying with you voice You can say anything from your mouth but what you get is what you are asking from within That is was is dominant

We must put forth effort if we want to please God First of Jesus says ask this means we must open up our mouths and talk to God Come to Him with words The fervant prayer of a righteous man availeth much Next we have to seek that means if we want God we have to look for Him whatever we need we have to diligently seek out the answer from God and finally Jesus tells us to knock If we are standing on somebody s front porch but never take the time to knock on the door then how will they know to let us in Same thing with God if we never pray if we never call on His Son if we never let Him know we want to be saved He isn t going to open the door and that door is to the Kingdom of God I do not see this verse as talking all together about financial blessings or getting a wife or a husband or a new job this verse is about asking for the Holy Ghost and the fire If we want the Holy Ghost then we must ask for Him and must not stop until God opens that door and pours His Spirit freely upon us

One of my favorite Biblical quotes...
Reddysreerama's comment on 2013-12-28 05:25:44:
Ask it shall be given
seek it shall be found and
knock and it shall be opened unto you.
Here we should ask which is well pleased to our Lord
Seek the kingdom of god first and then every thing required to us in his will, will be given;
knock the door of Gods kingdom then it will be opened is the meaning of Mathew 7;7

I pray, for a beautiful wife, and a home to have , before I found out how many grandkids , I would have to take to church. I also prayed for the Lord, to make it harder on me and not my friends and family, which he did , but know I await my wife, even though I may know whom she is I await to see, what and where she may find me or I may find her. It is terrible, that it seeems as if everyone knows but me, excwept for I know, my faith will not let me down, nor will my Lord, because of the Blood of his begotten, Son, Our SAVIOR OF THE wORLD, tHANK yOU jESUS FOR ALL THAT yOU HAVE DONE FOR us.

I am seeing for God and I do not know who to turn to, I do not have bible and I need someone to offer me one. God richly bless you all.

I believe Matthew 7:7 clearly specifies the intensity of a Christian's prayer with regard to one's needs. As the words ask, seek and knock show a substantial increase in aggressive ascending order, so are we directed here to attach a specific kind of approach to every prayer request we make.
