Unoffered Prayer
Paul continued steadfastly, persistent in prayer, dedicated (imperative tense, command).

Persistent Prayer
Luke 18:1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they
should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a
judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a
widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice
against my adversary.’ 4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to
himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet
because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so
that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen
to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his
chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when
the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

Jesus prayed without ceasing
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you
will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks
receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will
be opened.

Passionate Prayer
Luke 3:21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And
as he was praying, heaven was opened.

Luke 6:12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and
spent the night praying to God.

Luke 9:28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and
James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the
appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash
of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor,
talking with Jesus.

John 17:9 (Jesus Prays for His Disciples) I pray for them. I am not praying
for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.

Matthew 26:39 Going a little farther, he (Jesus) fell with his face to the
ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from
me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Luke 23:39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him:
“Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” 40 But the other criminal
rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same
sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds
deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus,
remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 Jesus answered him,
“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Luke 11:1 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one
of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught
his disciples.”

Matthew 6:7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they
think they will be heard because of their many words.

James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other
so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and
effective.

Prayer with Thankfulness
Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by
prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will
for you in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the
name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

1 Timothy 4:4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be
rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,

Intercessory Prayer
Isaiah 53:12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his
life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin
of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.

Luke 23:34 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

John 14:15-17 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth.

Romans 8:34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who
died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God
and is also interceding for us.

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God
through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
