    There seems to be a time limit, a closing point. After death, we won't get any more chances. Maybe this is what Luke 13 is referring to.

    That's what I was thinking. Wondering if any other interpretations are out there. I also heard that in Luke 11 the person was friends with the Lord while in Luke 13 the person isn't known by the Lord.

    It would be best if you read them in the context of the entire chapter(s)

    Promises are for the children. Not all are God’s children.

    If I understand your question, I would say Luke 11:1-13 refers to asking for the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). Luke 13:25 seems to refer to something like the judgment. Luke 11:1-13 is Jesus response to the disciples' desire to learn how to pray. And Jesus's basic reply is, if you ask for the Spirit, God will give you the Spirit. Luke 13:25 is in response to the question, "Lord, will only a few be saved?" Saved from what? I assume the judgment. Does that help?

    He uses the same type metaphor, but different references. Or, I completely misunderstood the question.

    Similar to Gracia's answer, Luke 13 appears to refer to the last day. There will be no second chances after death. "Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity" (v. 26, 27).
