    This small 5 x 7 inch matted print is an updated version I recently completed of my original acrylic painting of the parable that Jesus told in the Gospel of Luke about our need for persistence in prayer.
    I loved the original painting but after selling it a few months ago, I wanted to make a new version to illustrate the parable in a way that reflected that the soul knocking on the door (symbolic of prayer) was in a spiritual place seeking the Lord.

    Blue is a color that represents holiness to me, so I’ve added lots of blue to this work. And more light.

    For while the soul might be in a state of darkness and desperately need guidance from God, His Word says that “God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. “( 1 John 1:5)

    Below is the parable this painting illustrates, quoted from the New Living Translation Bible:

    "Then, teaching them more about prayer, Jesus used this story:
    “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread.
    You say to him, ‘A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit, and I have nothing for him to eat.’

    And suppose he calls out from his bedroom, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is locked for the night, and my family and I are all in bed. I can’t help you.’

    But I tell you this—though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence.

    “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.
    Keep on seeking, and you will find.
    Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    For everyone who asks, receives.
    Everyone who seeks, finds.
    And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened."
    ~Luke 11:5-9

    My painting of this story serves as a visual reminder of how persistent Jesus said we must be when we pray about our needs.

    Luke 18:1 says: "One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up."

    We all have needs that we must bring before the Lord and Jesus stressed that we must not give up trusting that our Heavenly Father does hear our prayers and will answer them in His own way and time.

    Our Lord Jesus said that we must hold on to faith and keep asking, keep knocking, and keep seeking His face.

    This little painting will encourage anyone who needs to be reminded to never give up praying and believing that God hears and will answer their prayer.

    The print is watermarked here on the internet but your purchased print will not be watermarked.
