Can Christians repeatedly pray for something more than once?
Of course! Jesus Himself did!
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed “nevertheless my will, but the Father’s will be done" three times! (Luke 22:42, Matthew 26:36, 39-44)
Matthew 26:44 New King James Version
So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
Mark 14:39 New King James Version
Again He went away and prayed, and spoke the same words.
“You must persevere. You are not to pray for a thing once, then cease, and call that the prayer of faith. Look at Daniel. He prayed 21 days and did not stop until he obtained the blessing. He held on 3 weeks, then the answer came. Jesus taught that God will grant answers to prayer when prayer is persistent.” –Charles Finney
Notice that Jesus was against “VAIN" repetitions as the heathen do when they pray mechanical mantras to their false gods/idols. But Jesus was not against repeatedly praying for something more than once.
“Christians can indeed “repeatedly" and persistently pray for healing, provision, help, guidance, wisdom, making the right decisions in life, miracles, revival, or the repentance and conversion of lost family members, until you see your prayers answered by God."-Johnson and Pearl
Matthew 6:7 New King James Version
“And when you pray, do not use VAIN repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
Sadly, some of today’s Charismatic Christian belief in a fallacy that says: “Don’t repeatedly pray for something over and over, just pray for something once, and thank God it’s done."
However, this is wishful thinking that originated from arrogance and laziness in prayer. Nothing could be further from true prayer.
Today’s fake Christian often do this and pray once then go on sinning, watching TV or porn. No wonder they never get their prayers answered!
Psalm 66:18 (KJV) “If I (David, a righteous man) regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.
Proverbs 28:9 “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the (moral) law, even his prayer shall be abomination.”
