Be Persistent in Prayer
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
How would you rate your prayer life? What have you been praying about recently? Perhaps you are unemployed, unhappy or ill. Are you worried about what the future will bring or lonely and feeling helpless? Ask, the Bible says, seek and knock on God's door.
God can send a friend into a lonely life, someone to help and befriend. Indeed, God's Son is a friend, an ever present help.
Or maybe you or a loved one is ill. Ask God for healing. Continue to pray. Be persistent; be patient. Ask others to pray with you. Jesus was sent into this world "to heal the brokenhearted" (Luke 4:18).
Whatever you need, physical, emotional, or spiritual, God is waiting to hear from you and to respond to your prayer. Bring all your needs to the Lord in prayer. Be specific.
And then be patient. Prayer connects us to the all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God. God's answer is not always yes. Sometimes it's wait. Sometimes it's no. But God always answers the Christian's prayer. "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
Heavenly Father, we ask You to continue to shower Your love and forgiveness on us, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
