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.

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.
