Yes. because if you read Matthew 7:7 in the amplified version, it says "keep asking". Also Jeremiah 29:13 says " seek Me".
IPeter 3:12 says His eyes are upon us His ears are open to our PRAYERS.
Hebrews 11:6 says God rewards those who diligently(consistently & constantly) seek Him.

God hears prayers the first time. We may not always get the answer we want or as fast as we want it. His word says in Matthew 21:22 "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

Yes because the bible says: Pray without ceasing.
Then there's the parable about the woman and the judge, she kept going back to the judge and eventually her wish was granted. "Because she keeps coming to me" is what the judge said.
David prayed constantly for God to deliver him from his enemies (it's in alot of his Psalms).

Who knows, you may get what you want!

Yes I do, Jeses encourages us to this.
In the parable of the unjust judge, the woman keeps demmanding justice and he eventually gives it to her. We are encouraged to do the same, to keep pounding on the door till we get what we are asking for, or told we can't have it.

Jesus' exhortation to ask seek and knock
Implies 3 things to each word.
the time in which we do it-Now.
The constant looking for the expected blessing of God is part of the process.
The waiting will always lead us again to our knees and keep us asking him all the day long: 'when shall I see this lord?' 'Is this it?'
Alas prayer is answered; acompanied by the voice of our champion through his spirit..."as you have believed it shall be done."

The effectual FERVENT prayers of righteous men availeth much

Mat. 21:22 "All things, whatsoever you ask in prayer believing you shall receive". James 1:6,7 "But let him ask in faith, nothing waving. For he that waverth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think he shall receive anything of the Lord". Mk. 11:24 "Therefore I say unto you. What things soever ye desire, when you pray, believe you receive them, and ye shall have them". Permissible yes, but not necessary.

Sure, if something is weighing on me heavily, I pray as many times as it takes to get some peace about it. Sometimes that means the Lord showing me what to do; sometimes just assurance that the Lord is in control.
What's this "PIMP" thing? I guess it doesn't mean what it did a few years ago, but I'm not sure what it means NOW. It's a word that still makes me uncomfortable.

In prayer you have to be a P.I.M.P.
Midst of a
Not a P.U.N.K.
Prayer requires faith.
In prayer we can be bold as a lion with God.
Meaning, we don't have to be scared.(ITimothy 1:7; Hebrews 4:16)

Another example is Jacob, he wouldn't let go until he got what he wanted.(Genesis 32:26)
Also Genesis 18:22-33 shows boldness & righteousness. He was bold enough to keep asking God & God kept answering him.
In Genesis 18:33 it says "And the LORD went His way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham:"
God enjoys a person who will commune with Him.
