What Are You Seeking in Your Life?
That's what prayer is. It is our privilege and our ability to be able to share with God what is on our hearts, what is on our minds, our fears, our hopes, our dreams, our aspirations. And I love the promise that Jesus gave to us in Matthew seven. Ask and it shall be given unto you. Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be open unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh, it shall be open. Then Jesus asked the question, Of what man is there of you, whom, if his son shall ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he shall ask a fish, will give him a serpent? If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father, which is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? Jesus urged us to pray, and pray often, and to pray with genuineness and to pray with earnestness.
