Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as you pray, giving thanks to God.  
Colossians 4:2

Prayer or asking God for something, especially for the infilling of the Holy Spirit is not a one time thing. We pray persistently. We keep on asking. 

Gospel of Luke records a parable Jesus shared of a persistent widow,which I would like to read with you:

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’

“For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’ ”

And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 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? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18-1-8

Clearly Jesus encourages us to pray, pray often, pray day in and day out, pray constantly. Shall we?

“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” John 15:7
