I have just a quick little thought on this verse. I think it is important for us to always remember how important it is to keep on asking, seeking and knocking even when we feel like our prayers are not being answered. I like this little poem I found in my bible commentary.
God answers prayers:
Sometimes, when hearts are weak,
He gives the very gifts believers seek;
But often faith must learn a deeper rest,
And trust God’s silence when He does not speak;
For He whose name is love will send the best,
Stars may burn out, nor mountain walls endure,
But God is true, His promise are sure,
He is our strength. – M.G.P.
