Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask, Seek, Knock”

Think back at a time in your life when you were persistent with something, really persistent. Odds are, it worked out for you! Even if it did not, Jesus promises that our persistence in prayer will be rewarded. In this passage, Jesus describes prayer as asking, seeking, and knocking.

“Ask,  and it will be given to you;  seek, and you will find;  knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?  If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! Matthew 7:7‭-‬11
