(Strong's #335 — Noun Feminine — anaidia[-ea] — an-ah'ee-die-ah' )

denotes "shamelessness, importunity" (a, negative, n, euphonic, and aidos, "shame, modesty"), and is used in the Lord's illustration concerning the need of earnestness and perseverance in prayer, Luke 11:8 . If shameless persistence can obtain a boon from a neighbor, then certainly earnest prayer will receive our Father's answer.
