"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. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." [Luke 11:9-10]

No matter where you find a man or a woman, when you meet one who is in distress, they will ask for supernatural help. I believe in the truthfulness of this instinct, and that men and women pray because there is something in prayer. And when the Creator gives his creature the power of thirst, it is because water exists to meet its thirst; and just as he creates hunger there is food to correspond to the appetite; so when he prompts men and women to pray it is because prayer has a corresponding blessing connected with it.

We find a powerful reason for expecting prayer to be effective in the fact that it is an institution of God. In God's word we are, over and over again, commanded to pray. God's commands and means are not foolishness. Can I believe that the infinitely wise God has ordained for me an exercise which is ineffective, and is no more than child's play? Does he command me to pray, and yet has prayer produce no more result than if I whistled in the wind, or sang to a bunch of trees? If there is no answer to prayer, then prayer is a monstrous absurdity and God is the author of it; which is blasphemy to assert. No man, unless he is a fool will continue to pray when you have once proved to him that prayer has no effect with God, and never receives an answer. If prayer yields no results then it is an exercise for idiots and madmen, and not for sane persons!

In the text our Lord meets all difficulties first by giving us the weight of his own authority, "I say to you "; next by presenting us with a promise, "Ask, and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you"; and then by reminding us of an indisputable fact, "everyone who asks receives." Here are three mortal wounds for a Christian's doubts as to prayer.
