The prayer of faith is a one-time prayer where you receive when you pray and then never pray the same way about it again. But there are other kinds of prayer that you pray more than once. Diligent, consistent prayer is definitely in the Bible. Seeking God and the things we need from God are also in the Bible.
Seek – to make search or enquiry for; look for; ask for; strive to attain.
Seeking involves diligent action.
Where is the time and effort of your life going? Where is your attention and thought (Isaiah 55:1-3). What do you do when you have extra time? These things are indications of what you are seeking.
Matthew 7:7-8 (Amplified Bible) – Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
Notice this verse says to seek and keep on seeking and ask and keep on asking.
Seeking God involves study of the Word and application of what you find.
Seeking involves separation.
