Ask, Seek, Knock

Ask, Seek, Knock

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it will be opening to you. (Matthew 7:7)

God has given to use the privilege of prayer. Because of Jesus' death on the cross, our sins are forgiven and our relationship with the Father is restored. We can talk with Him about our problems, praising Him for His mercy and abundant blessings.

Have you prayed often for a relative who doesn't know Christ, for healing, or for a new job? Whatever the prayer, we can be confident that God hears us. Our Savior desires that we talk with Him about all our concerns--to ask, seek, and knock. He wants us to be persistent. He speaks in a parable about a man who, during the night, went to a neighbor and go what he wanted-break for a visit-because he kept asking.

Praying diligently is hard. Satan likes to put obstacles in our way. Our human nature causes us to forget to pray. We try to work out our problems on our own. But remembering God's Word, we know God is the one we must rely on. He has told us that without Him we can do nothing.

Let's continue praying! What a privilege to take all our cares to the God who has promised to answer!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for the privilege and power to pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
