May 1, 2014 was National Day of Prayer for our country…Let’s continue to pray and share our faith!
Many times in scripture God invites his children to ask him, to seek him first for what they need and even want. We have some responsibility to be successful in prayer. We have to believe in him and believe that he has the power to do what we are asking of him. We also must have the right attitude. Be thankful.
Check out Matthew 7: 7-12 (AMP, The Holy Bible):
7 Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, if his son asks him for a loaf of bread, will hand him a stone?
10 Or if he asks for a fish, will hand him a serpent?
11 If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!
12 So then, whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do also to and for them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the Prophets
Amen! Let’s keep on asking, seeking and knocking.
God answers when we pray in faith. Glory! Hallelujah!
