When We Pray
Matthew 7:7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
Our God is a prayer answering God. James 4:2 says “You want what you don’t have, so you kill to get it. You long for what others have, and can’t afford it, so you start a fight to take it away from them. And yet the reason you don’t have what you want is that you don’t ask God for it.”
Matthew 7:7 is pretty clear when it says “Keep on asking” “Keep on seeking” “Keep on knocking.” God does not work on our agenda. And, why should He? He wants us to keep asking Him for what we need and relying on Him to keep His promises to us. Then Matthew 21:22 “You can get anything—anything you ask for in prayer—if you believe.” will become our new reality.
